…and the Democrats hate it.
They think it’s a stunt.
Well, sure. It’s a stunt.
It’s a stunt with a point. The Republicans running the House are serious about following the Constitution, and they’d like to make a show of doing so. Actually reading it is one way to start doing that.
And despite all the sniping about publicity stunts, the previous Congress demonstrated precisely why it’s necessary to go back to the Constitution. Remember this?
The 111th Congress crapped all over the Constitution. They did it with impunity, and they laughed at people who questioned their fealty to the document.
So it’s now necessary to remarry the House to the Constitution.
And by the way, who the hell are the Democrats to complain about stunts? What was this?
Basically, it’s time for Democrats to shut up. Just can it. We’re not interested in what you have to say.
Today is the Constitution’s day. Those of us who don’t like the Constitution can put their hands over their ears.
