Paper Shortage

In November of 2005, according to The Rant:
"Mr. President," one aide in the meeting said. "There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution."

"Stop throwing the Constitution in my face," Bush screamed back. "It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"

I've talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution "a goddamned piece of paper."
Our Canard Boiteux was just carrying Texas values to Washington. Look at the Greedy Ol' Boys in his own backyard, among the Republicans trying to nominate a replacement for Tom "Interminable" Delay's seat in Congress. Vince Leibowitz spotted a report at Fort Bend Now of the questions the Harris County party was asking the wannabes behind closed doors, including these gems:
Will you vote to support a ban on all human embryonic stem cell research?

Will you vote against benefits to same-sex partners of government employees?

Will you vote to eliminate automatic citizenship to children born of illegal alien parents?
Especially note this one:
Regarding the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, does the Constitution require the separation of church and state?
It sort of makes a mockery of the last phrase of Article VI:
... no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

God forbid a Congressional candidate understand the origin of the phrase "separation of church and state."

And no, it doesn't make a mockery.
