Face It, Teabaggers Are Just Plain Ignorant

A snippet of the debate between Chris Coons ans Christine O'Donnell.  He schools her on the meaning of the First Amendment.  Watch her embarrassment at the end.

The sheer ignorance of these teabagging types is mind-numbing. The First Amendment is basic stuff that we all learned (or should have) in grade school.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
And this O'Donnell woman is running for the Senate.  She, like so many evangelicals, wrongly believes that we are a Christian nation, and that Christianity should be taught in schools.  She is a fool, and a lot of people believe as she does.  Sad.

Fortunately, she hasn't a snowball's chance of winning.

  1. Wow, mind-numbing is right. Newsweek just ran a great article on the Tea Party - they discussed how the Tea Party members/supporters defend the Constitution as they do their Bible, yet they barely seem to know what it says. O'Donnell proves that here. Both Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann have endorsed this woman. Ugh.

  2. And, many of them are just as ignorant about the bible. I'll check out that Newsweek article.
