That pesky Constitution!

OK, admit it. Ideologues come and ideologues go, but it'd be fun to sit down and have a drink with Bill Buckley -- if only because anyone who would say "Cancel your own goddamn subscription" would be fun to have on the desk when the bar-bet drunks started calling in around second-edition time on Saturday night.

In that spirit, we can only hope old Bill was tied down, or wired to the generator or something, when his heirs and assigns produced this:

By and large, Romney’s stump speech has been the same throughout these state contests, little changing but what lines of America the Beautiful he quotes as he goes from state to state. But this speech shows he – and his team – were capable of producing better rhetoric.

And an example would be ... ?

“For 25 years, I lived and breathed jobs, business, and the economy,” he said. “I had successes and failures but each step of the way, I learned a little more about what it is that makes our American system so powerful.”

You can’t learn that teaching Constitutional law,” he added.

Uh, guess not. Back to you, Bill!
