Preserve, Protect, and Defend

The Tea Party folks like to say that they’re all about defending the Constitution… except the parts of it that they don’t like and would like to change or delete, like the First, Fourteenth, Sixteenth, Seventeenth, and Twenty-first Amendments.

Apparently they have a problem with freedom of religion for Muslims, birthright citizenship and equal protection, the tax code (of course), direct election of senators, and the repeal of the 18th Amendment, which put Prohibition in place.

The last one makes no sense whatsoever, because if the Tea Party takes over, we’re going to need a lot of booze to get through those times.
