Wiping with the Constitution.

As the Rude Pundit points out, the Republican party has become quite good at this. Moreover, as he also notes, this is probably a sign that if anybody hates America, hates democracy, hates a long and messy history of pluralistic, democratic governance, it must be the modern Republican theocrats. I like hyperbole, I like to make hyperbolic statements and use hyperbolic rhetoric, but is it really hyperbole to say that Bill Frist and his theocon minions in the Senate are going to take a big, gnarly, post-barbecue-with-eggs-for-breakfast dump all over the Senate rules, the Constitution, and 214 years of history? I think not.
