Comic Relief- Wingnut Style

Here's a quote from an article on my current fave wingnut site, Renew America:

"Did you know...the federal government is only constitutionally granted the authority to provide for our common defense? Our constitution is violated every time the federal government seeks to provide education, health care, financial aid...anything other than common defense."

Hmm. Here is another opinion of the constitutional role of the federal government:

"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

When lies become this blatant, there really isn't much to say, is there? This opinion piece was written by one Mark West, who describes himself as "Corporate Office Manager for Mechanical Construction Services, Inc., in Newark, Arkansas, and serves in an evangelistic preaching ministry."

Mark, it seems to be beyond your intellectual capacity to make it through the first sentence of the actual Constitution. This leads me, O evangelic preaching minister, to wonder if you got far enough in the Bible to read that part where it says "thou shalt not bear false witness."

No? Okay, then.

Now, now, now -- I'm sure he's read the Bible every bit as carefully as he's read the Constitution.

No doubt. But he hasn't spent a couple of hours every Sunday morning having some braindead idiot screaming passages of the constitution at him.
