For one of their first acts, Republicans are going to read the entire Constitution on the floor of the House of Representatives. Now, I have nothing but respect for the US Constitution, as anyone who’s read my blog surely knows.
But come on. This is a cheap stunt for the Tea Party base, and it achieves nothing except to serve as an excellent indicator of how the GOP House is going to operate. Time-wasting nonsense will reign.
Rush Limbaugh, as usual, takes the rhetoric right to where the base lives, complaining about being accused of fetishizing the Constitution even as he compares reading it to an “exorcism.” (And a lot of his listeners will take this quite literally, because they also believe in exorcism.)
