I’m gonna stand with you and all freedom-loving Americans against this [health care] bill…this is my copy of the Constitution, and I’m gonna stand here with our Founding Fathers who wrote in the preamble: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Any United States legislator who claims to be quoting the Constitution but who is actually quoting the Declaration of Independence should be forced out of office IMMEDIATELY. Assuming, that is, that he doesn’t have the decency and shame to resign on his own.
No. Not enough. He should be plopped on a donkey backwards with a bucket on his head and trotted to the city limits.
Senate rules must be amended immediately. This is inexcusable.
