Jingoism Gone Wild

Doesn't this comfort you?

"The Republicans taking over the House of Representatives next week will read the constitution out loud in its entirety. It's something that has never been done in the chamber's 221 year history." 

That will really contribute a lot to solving the problems which the same Republicans caused, right?  What a bunch of jackasses. I can't wait to see what other ways they find to avoid dealing with the real issues.

If they deal with real issues, how can they show that government does not work?

Good point there, guy. By the way, nice picture. Is that a candid shot of Newt Gingrich?

Fetishizing the Constitution is a way for the GOPers to avoid facing the reality of their 30 years of screwing the country into destitution.

Why didn't they read it when Dubya was in office?

Oh, wait, I'll answer that.

Because when they effed up the country, that was patriotic.

These people are major idiots.

They aren't reading the constitution now. The "reading" of the constitution by ignorant, deranged wingnuts like Sarah Palin takes precedence in their minds over hundreds of years of established law. The constitution means whatever they want it to mean, which turns out to amount to no taxes for white people, minorities can screw themselves while they starve to death, and if you are a Democrat they have a God given right to murder you.
