But, really, we shouldn't be surprised.
Just think of all the other aspects of our Constitution and our laws that Republicans have ignored over the past eight years:
- Habeus Corpus? Check.
- Extra-legal prisons on foreign soil? Check.
- Trashing the Fourth Amendment? Check.
- Illegal war? Check.
- Lying to the American people? Check.
- Suppressing and/or stealing votes? Check.
Well, you get the idea.
So while I appreciate Matthews' and Olbermann's humor, I just can't be surprised anymore. I can only hope that we can win in November with a large enough margin to swamp any attempts at stealing another election and we can move on towards healing.
But - just because we can - add to the comments your favorite "extra-Constitutional" activities of the last eight years. Don't be shy, there are plenty to go around!
