I don't know how and I don't know why--and even if I did, I'm certainly not about to justify myself to you people, you bunch of degenerate liberals--but I found this lurking deep within my very own archives:
Republicans have officially started the the campaign to amend the Constitution by repealing the 22nd Amendment - the one that confines the President to two terms. If the Republicans hold their current strength, or increase it, in the 2006 Congressional elections, expect this measure to pass allowing Bush to remain President...
And, no shit--it's true!
Mr. HOYER (for himself, Mr. BERMAN, Mr. SENSENBRENNER, Mr. SABO, and Mr. PALLONE) introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:
`The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is repealed.'.
That was in 2005! And these freaks wanted the Worst President Evah to have another term. And, even funnier, they thought he could win one!
Please. Don't talk to me about foul mouthed, vituperative bloggers on the fringe having some kind of deleterious effect on our most civil political process.
This country was run by crazy people. For years.
And it wasn't that long ago.
