Life In a Republican Led Congress

Republicans demanded that the full (amended) version of the Constitution be read on the House floor on the first day of the 112th Congress. That was pretty silly. Sillier is that Republican lawmakers then violated the Constitution by conducting official business without being sworn in. The other silly news item of the day is more sad than anything: a woman had to be removed from the House gallery during the reading of the Constitution because she interrupted the proceedings as the Natural Born Citizen clause was read. She screamed that the clause did not apply to President Obama. Either she knows something we don't (such as Barack Obama was born by cesarean section operation a la MacDuff) or this is the fruits of letting conservative ideology commingle with absurd conspiracy theories.

Say what you will about liberal 9/11 Truthers- at least they kept their crazy on the internet. The Republicans have invited the crazy into the Capitol.
