Pop quiz

UPDATE 10/21: Oh, we’re havin’ some fun now. (My idea; DivaGeek’s execution.)

* * *

One question:

Which of the two subjects above knows more about the Constitution?

A) The subject on the left.

B) The subject on the right.

C) Neither knows a damn thing about it.

D) Neither knows a damn thing about it and there’s a better-than-even chance that both of them pee on it.

As I reTweeted earlier, the problem here isn’t that Christine O’Donnell doesn’t know a damn thing about the First Amendment, although that is, indeed, a problem, at least in Delaware and at least for the moment.

No, the problem is that the entire freaking right wing, including more of the Tea Party than its backers want to admit, believes the same damn thing. O’Donnell is just a random example drawn from a pool tens of millions of Americans deep. These people hate America. They want this country to be a Christianist theocracy. And some of them are in positions of real power, influence and responsibility. I like to find humor in things, but I don’t find that especially funny.
