CREDENTIALED, NOT EDUCATED: Ezra Klein: the Constitution is Impossible to Understand Because It’s Over 100 Years Old.
Just another dismissal of those long-dormant ideas from dusty bookshelves . . . Because
educated credentialed people don’t care about those!
UPDATE: Reader Dave Ivers writes: “And the Left says Palin is stupid?”
ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Daniel Barenholtz emails: “. . and after all that talk about Bush wanting to ‘shred the constitution’. Now a meme seems to be developing among some liberals that the Constitution is outmoded.”
I guess Bush should have just said “Whaddya mean, it’s over a hundred years old!”
MORE: Reader Mark Meyer notes that although the headline at Eyeblast is “impossible,” Klein actually says the Constitution is “confusing.” I don’t see this as being as big a difference as Meyer does, but I suppose it’s worth noting.
