I've spent a lot of time around Republicans and especially those around El Paso. They claim to LOVE the Constitution.
I don't mean love the document like I love menudo. They say the love the Constitution in a way that echoes of religious worship. Which is a fair comparison because they both seem to base their devotion to the Bible and the Consitution on the infallibility of the documents.
Hell I've watched Republicans listen to Dr. Roth in an almost orgasmic religious fervor when he would speak about the Constitution.
The Republican Party in town even bought in a Constitutional "expert" to talk about the document over the last couple of months. (I especially get a kick out of Republicans when they talk to us like we don't know what the Constitution is and they act like they are more devoted to its principles.)
So I find it almost impossible for the self-appointed guardians of the Constitution to reconcile Govenor Perry's recent Constitutional positions. Perry wants to guy some very important parts of the Constitution.
Where is the Right Reverend Roth and the rest of the GOP when they hear crazy talk like that from Governor Perry?
So here ya go Republicans...give it your best stab. Reconcile the almost religious devotion to (parts of) the Consitution and support for a Governor who wants to gut key parts of the revered document.
