Peak wingnuttia?

Nah, not even close, I suspect, but we've exceeded the wingnut capacity that I was expecting. Republicans are now seriously talking about repealing another constitutional amendment. First they took aim at the 17th Amendment (direct election of Senators) and now they want to repeal the 14th Amendment. The 14th Amendment provides important due process protections and requires states to abide by them. The wingers are unhappy with the amendment because it allows folks born on US soil to be US citizens.

Seriously, is there nothing these clowns won't stoop to in order to pander to the tea baggers? Do they have no sense of shame or embarrassment?

Geez, how about addressing the issue without devolving into name-calling? Clowns and tea baggers? Anyway, the Repubs are squandering an opportunity to make major inroads nationally by embracing the libertarian end-timers, instead of fiscally responsible pragmatists (Walt Minick?).
