Happy Holidays, Bushy!

constitution2.jpgThe folks over at the Center for Constitutional Rights are working on giving President Bush a very special Christmas. Specifically, they’re hoping to send him over 25,000 copies of the Constitution as a way to remind him “that he swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United Sates,” rather than “systematically destroying” it. You can sign their petition here, and that page also gives you a link where you can donate if you’re so inclined (they say the production and shipping costs come out to about $2.50/Constitution, so they would need a hefty $62,500 to hit their goal of 25,000 Constitutions).

Of course, while this is an amusing and fun idea which I whole-heartedly support, the problem is that it just doesn’t matter. I don’t think Bush needs reminding that he swore an oath to uphold the Constitution. He knows … he just doesn’t care.

It's always important to note when either President Bush or a current candidate (Giuliani does this frequently; I think I've heard Romney and McCain do it too) says, "I took an oath to defend this nation..."

Not "defend the Constitution" but "defend this nation."

Embrace that bait-and-switch, and all the rest follows naturally and unsurprisingly.
