What does it take to win a Pulitzer Prize or write editorials for the Washington Post? Hard to say [though being a liberal certainly helps], but familiarity with the basic constitutional principles upon which our country was founded is apparently not required.
On today's Morning Joe, Pulitzer Prize winner and Washington Post editorialist Jonathan Capehart apologized to Senator Tom Coburn for being unfamiliar with Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, the Enumerated Powers clause. As you'll see from the clip, Capehart's befuddlement regarding the clause seemed to extend beyond the specific article number to the very principle that it embodies.

No wonder liberals see no limits on the power of the federal government: at least some of them don’t realize such limits exist! Ping to Today show list.

Capehart- another stupid Liberal puppy propped up by the affirmative action crusade and catapulted into the real world without the least conception of how the ‘real world’ GOT there or REMAINS there!

Apparently being gay is a plus too.

Capehart is an LIV (low information voter).

That’s nothing. Delaware - including RINOs - elected an admitted Marxist who doesn’t know what rights are enumerated in the First Amendment.
Christine O’Donnell may have been a “mistake”, using Cheney’s word, but at least she knew the Constitution.

You didn’t earn that Pulitzer - somebody else earned that!
Being a liberal means never having to rely on facts.
This guy is dumber than a bus full of Pelosis.
