With right wing politicians and pundits apparently in competition with one another to say the most ridiculous and hyperbolic things they can think of about President Obama, Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia is staking his claim to the title with this little gem of stupid:
“I think my role is to uphold support and defend our Constitution,” he said. “… The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution. I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.”
I’m sorry, what year is this? I swear, for wingnuts it is always “morning in America,” as Reagan famously said, because they are perpetually stuck in the 1980s. The Soviet Union is gone. It’s been gone for more than 20 years. Red-baiting was moronic even while they existed; it makes you look even dumber to use this bullshit in 2013.
