In this March 23, 2006, file photo, Margie Phelps, daughter of Rev. Fred Phelps, of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., kicks a U.S. flag on the grass outside the State Capitol during a rally for the "Right to Rest in Peace" rally in Denver. Phelps is set to go before the U.S. Supreme Court on today to represent her church in a case that tests the scope of free speech protections under the Constitution's First Amendment. You write the cutline. (AP Photo/The Rocky Mountain News, Chris, Schneider)

Top Cutlines:

  • 1. D'oh! The posters were supposed to read “God Hates Flags …” -- Kevin Taylor; and: she needs to get laid!, but….. how?! -- Pecky Cox.
  • 2. Phelps takes a high kick to start running away like the coward she is when the American Flag takes on a life of its own and prepares to attack with a furl of its red and white stripes, the stars coming to a head, teeth chomping at her heels -- JeanieS.
  • 3. Margie flags again the perception that the worst-behaved kids are the children of preachers, teachers and cops -- JohnA.
