Liberal Era Klein Pans the Constitution, Saying it Was Written 100 years Ago
Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 1, 2011
As we start the New Year it is comforting (disconcerting) to realize that uniformed Progressives remain uninformed. One the Left’s start bloggers helped drive this point home on MSNBC last week. The network’s Leftist commentator, Norah O’Donnell, begins by remarking how unusual it is that Republicans are starting the new session of Congress by reading the Constitution. Imaging the gall of the GOP invoking such a radical document to guide them in the coming year!
Then, in an effort to legitimize MSNBC’s assertion that reading the Constitution is somehow blasphemy, O’Donnell brings in network contributor editor and staff writer for the Washington Post, Ezra Klein. He merely took O’Donnell’s radical assertion and made it idiotic. First, Klein intimates that the Constitution “has no binding power on anything”. Then proving how little Klein knows about the Constitution, he says “the text is confusing because it was written more than 100 years ago”.
Mr. Klein, given that you are off on the Constitution’s origin date buy over 100 years, it is doubtful that you even took the time to read the document. But that should not surprise anyone. You are the same gentleman that accused Senator Joe Lieberman of being “willing to cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in order to settle an old electoral score“.
Klein has proved to be a uniformed knucklehead. As for a network that would look to Klein for intellectual guidance, they are merely supplying entertainment for their Progressive constituents. Those that drink from the Kool-Aid seem to enjoy this gibberish.
