Constitutional Convention? Suuuuure.
Obot Left's own 'Bait-n-Switch' Bowers is at it again. The magical pony he's offering this time is a "constitutional convention" which would presumably allow him and his access blogger cronies to re-write said foundational document, no doubt with input from a few of the more reliable bootlicks from the comment section. But wait! There's more...
"Further, even the building threat of what might come out of such a convention could be enough to pressure Congress into real action."
Now, farbeit for me to call into question the reasoning abilities of the Obot Left commentariat - but if any person or group of persons had the kind of clout it would take to get two thirds of both houses (as detailed in a little scrap of parchment called The 5th Amendment) - why in the seven hells would they use that influence to all a constitutional convention? With that kind of clout, Bowers could easily pass a bill renaming the United States of America to 'The United States of Chris Bower's Happy-Funistan' and there would be no one to say him nay.
That; the Obots are buying into this DP shill's fantasy with the fervor of fanatic fundies at a tent stake revival isn't much of a surprise. The only question remaining, what is Bowwow angling to switch for the magical constitutional pony? Given his MO, (the health care debacle, for example) something so grandiose must be the bait for something astonishingly paltry. What could it be? Coffee coupons? A box of steak knives?
