Congressman John Boehner, who always manages to well up with tears and Cry Uncontrollably whenever he speaks of his own life, childhood, parents or siblings while repeatedly voting against children's education, healthcare and welfare has just been elected Speaker of the House!
Mister Sensitive, the newly elected Speaker or as late-night comedians have been prone to call him John Bone-Head, 'Weeper' of the House, promised a new era of transparency while vowing to push forward the conservative, right-wing agenda. First and foremost on that agenda, he declared, will be reading aloud the Constitution of the United States on the House Floor. He then proceeded to quote what he said was the Constitution.
"This is my copy of the Constitution. And I'm going to stand here with our founding fathers, who wrote 'We hold these truths to be self-evident That All Men Are Created Equal etc. etc. etc. ...' "
Gee, nice sentiment John, only problem is you just quoted the Declaration of Independence.
As an informed member of the American electorate. I would like to believe that all elected members of Congress have actually already read and understand the Constitution of the United States of America. But, apparently not. So perhaps reading it aloud might be a good idea after all. I can only hope that they take the time to really listen to, comprehend and grasp its relevance.
