The great attraction of the Repeal Amendment (executive summary: it’s a proposed amendment that would allow state legislatures to overrule Congress with a two-thirds majority) is that it reveals the abysmal ignorance of those on the Left who oppose it. Apparently – at least, according to Dana Lithwick/Jeff Sheshol, Dana Milbank, and Doug Mataconis* – Article V of the Constitution is just there for show, and God forbid that conservatives ever propose to use it to do anything.
Seriously: these people are so infuriated that the conservative Republicans in objective reality are so different from the conservative Republicans that live in their ids that they’re making really quite silly arguments. To add to Glenn’s commenter’s observation, by Dana Milbank’s own argument he’s not only against our freeing, then extending citizenship to, African-Americans; Milbank doesn’t want women to vote, either.
Which is just nasty of the man.
*Wait: are we supposed to be still pretending that he’s a conservative? If so, my bad: please disregard. I don’t actually want to wreck the guy’s gig.
