We should all listen to more talk radio. It’s just amazing the things you learn.
Like the other day, as I was driving through Nashville, and some AM-dial harpy was explaining how things were and ought to be to her listeners. She didn’t actually use the words “Democrats are the minions of Satan” (at least not while I was listening), but the implication was pretty clear. One of those.
The burr under her saddle at the moment was the Iraq war, where Congress is apparently poking their noses in where they have no business. And she said – paraphrasing as best I can here – that Congress needs to step off, because making war is the job of the President, not Congress.
Foolish me. Like literally dozens of Americans, I had been misled by the actual Constitution, which spells these things out in Article 1, Section 8. I’m beginning to suspect that Constitution was written by Liberals.
New rule: you can’t get on the radio and tell people what the Constitution says if you haven’t read what the Constitution says…
