We elect far too many Constitutional illiterates to high office.

Yes, I know: you’re looking at the screen and nodding slowly, as you would towards somebody who has blurted out an ‘insight’ that everyone else in the room had had five minutes ago.

(CNSNews.com) –  When asked where specifically the Constitution authorized Congress to mandate that individuals buy health insurance, Sen. Jack Reed (D.-R.I.) said that he “would have to check the specific sections” but said that it was like making people “sign up for the draft.”

And in fact I had already worked said insight out a while ago.  But… sometimes you just have to come out and repeat the obvious, dammit.
