What is this guy’s “claim to fame”? Recently graduating from High School? I’ve never heard of him. Appearing with Nora O’Donnell on PMSNBC doesn’t impress me.

Good faith my a$$, they deconstruct the Constitution in order to promote their self-interests.

If there is one thing I know for certain in this world is that we conservatives have conceded to much to the left.

They control the conversation of the national discourse, because we have conceded the media, the academy and the law schools to them.

THE CONSTITUTION IS NOT DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.

What has happened is we have allowed left-wing kooks to twist the meaning of the US Constitution to suit their nefarious political agenda.

When it comes to the plain meaning of the US Constitution and original intent, we conservatives are on the right side every time. We are on the rational side. We understand the political theory that gave birth to the US Constitution.

There is no reasonable debate over its meaning.

We believe in what the Constitution says and we believe in the genius of the Founding Fathers.

We understand the corrupt and totalitarian nature of state power.

Liberals believe in one ideological father: Karl Marx.

They despise everything the US Constitution stands for because it didn’t emanate from the ideas of their father.

He has thrown a high hanging curve ball for all the talk show hosts who return on Monday. With just a modicum of scholarship, these people should be able to destroy him. They should be able to contrast the inherent natural rights embodied in the Constitution, with the refusal to understand the document based on it being in conflict with various theories espoused to justify oligarchy or totalitarianism.

The Constitution was written more than 223 years ago, and despite the confidence various people have in their interpretation of the text, smart scholars of good faith continue to disagree about it.

What a stupid, moronic, liberal, thing to say. Notice his cutesy little (liberal) rhetorical move: he doesn't characterize the sort of "disagreement" these so-called "smart scholars" have about the Constitution. Why? Because most smart scholars of the Constitution do not have a whole lot of disagreement over the meaning of the Constitution - they have arguments, mostly along the lines of "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin," that involve mostly moot or academic points, and they have some disagreements over just how far the scope of a particular provision might go, but they generally do not have much disagreement over the core interpretation of the Constitution.
To update that old canard about lies and statistics, there are lies, there are damned lies, there are statistics, and then there are liberals.

Smart scholars... Hmm, let’s see. Is Ezra Klein talking about Justice Scalia not getting it or Justice Sotomayer? Justice Roberts or Justice Kagan?

Ezra Klein needs to be taken outside and slapped.

Maybe of good faith, but certainly some of them (the liberals) are delusional and stupid. I used to believe this way as well, when I was more liberal. It is very clear, however, what the Constitution meant, if you compare it to the various States constitutions, and if you read what THEY ACTUALLY WROTE THEMSELVES about it. No doubt, however, that all sides started to twist and turn the Constitution, almost from the get-go. Both sides deviated from it when convenient, heck, even Jefferson. But it is fairly clear what they meant, back when it was written.

Ezra Klein of the Washington Post, one of the most astute minds when it comes to procedure within Congress and fiscal concerns.

Interesting statement considering his moronic piece touting all the achievements of the Massachusetts Health Care Program, and how Obamacare would be even better.

Less than 15 minutes before the ZOT.

Most impressive.

And yet you didn’t zot me when you had every reason to a couple months ago when I had a serious meltdown after a really bad week (and hence very, nay, extremely! drunk).

Happy New Year, Admin Moderator. Salud!

IATZ, and it’s too bad, too, because I wanted to salute you, Ryan! Yessiree, our diversity is our strength, and I think it’s important that all points of view be presented here, including those of cliche-spouting, brain-dead liberal pukes. Yes, Ryan, it’s important that your voice should be heard, because now we can point to you and say, “Kids, stay in school. Don’t let this happen to you.”

Ezra Klein is a known “journo-list” propagandist. Anything he says or writes should be taken within that context. That is, he’s a shameless political activist with an agenda, and he should be brushed off like dandruff.

I watched this ass-wipe. If he thinks the Constitution is but an order of elected officials he’s got another thing coming. An elected 223 may be on order.
