House GOP to waste $1m reading US Constitution

I’m seriously sick of the Republicans playing Patriotism Theater on the taxpayer’s dime. They care about flag-burning, but ask them about the freedoms the flag represents and Republicans are much less interested. And yes, they’re going to have someone read the Constitution on the House floor, but the Bill of Rights (beyond the 2nd Amendment) – not so important.

The high theater, and empty-headedness, that is the modern Republican party just sickens me sometimes. Our country cannot survive as a world leader with leaders who refuse to focus on any of our problems – with leaders who refuse to admit that we have any problems at all. “We’re number one!” might play well at the ballot box, but it (along with prayer) are lousy strategies for the long-term survival of a superpower.
