To Open Congress, House Republicans Will Read Constitution Aloud (This should be fun.)

To Open Congress, House Republicans Will Read Constitution Aloud, Ignore the Parts They Hate | Firedoglake: "Why does the Constitution hate America?"

Are they really going to read the whole thing? Including the stuff about slaves being three-fifths of a person for purposes of apportionment and distribution of taxes? The linked post does a pretty good job pointing out several areas Republican wingnuts are probably going to choke on when they discover what's in the document they pretend to revere. I'm sure they'll have Scalia explain his work-arounds for all that troubling stuff during his lecture.

I wonder who will draw the short straw and have to read the stuff about how treaties are law, taxation, recess appointments, etc. that will inevitably be put in heavy rotation on TRMS and Countdown?
