Liberals Just Can't Grasp the Constitution

The left, as educated and intellectual as they see themselves, apparently have great difficulty understanding the United States Constitution. Why? Because it is over 100 years old. Could it be it is just too simple for their superior minds?

Example, the first amendment. Now this is as confusing as anything anybody could image.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

  1. The problem isn't the constitution, it's the liberals.

  2. It's not that the Constitution is confusing, rather it is him that is confused...
    What did she call him, a "wonk"? I did a search and found some interesting results.

    (1) Noun - An expert in a field, typically someone who is fairly young and very intelligent.
    (2) Verb - To use ones mastery of a specific subject to perform some type of work.

    If he's a "wonk" then perhaps the definition is wrong! maybe this one...
    –noun Slang .
    a student who spends much time studying and has little or no social life; grind.
    a stupid, boring, or unattractive person.
    a person who studies a subject or issue in an excessively assiduous and thorough manner: a policy wonk.

    I'm thinking #2

  3. So the intellectuals who are so smart that they want to do all our thinking for us, are not smart enough to understand old documents? Sounds about right.

  4. Video response!

  5. I've decide to utilize my marginal bully pulpit in defense of what Ezra Klein was implying. He obviously was not clear enough; perhaps an analogy would do the trick:

    Ezra Klein in The Cross-Hairs of Right Wing Outrage

  6. Ryan- He was quite clear to me... After all, isn't his job to be clear? And if he wants to characterize me as "Outraged right winger"... Fine. I am outraged! That "old paper" is where our freedom comes from. That is where the freedom to make asinine statements comes from...
