    Proving that they don't actually give a shit about the "sanctity" of the Constitution.

    The reading of Constitution was just another piece of BS political theater from the Repubs.

    That COST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE 1.1 MILLION DOLLARS.
    And got NOTHING done on behalf of the American people.

    Well, given their penchant for historical revisionism, this isn't surprising.

    The southbeach version is a scratch-n-sniff.

    Guess what it smells like?

    The 3/5's clause was egregiously wrong, but it is part of the Constitution, so no supporter of "originalism" should omit it, even as he/she acknowledges the subsequent amendment that corrects this wrong. They want to omit the deficiencies of the Constitution and use the parts they like to support whatever their agenda is.

    And guess what, this is minor compared to what 2 Reps who didn't swear their oaths and thus have been casting invalid votes these last few days!

    http://www.examiner.com/political-buzz-in-national/gop-scrambles-after-two-representatives-illegally-cast-votes-without-taking-oathThe only way for Republicans to get around the problem is to now pass a motion by unanimous consent which cleans up the mess. However, a unanimous consent motion, by definition, requires the consent of the minority. As a result, Republicans are literally forced to go to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to ask her if she will consent to the motion. It is unclear at this time if Pelosi will give the Republicans grace for what now appears to be a fairly large error.

    The story gets worse for Republicans when it comes to the reason for the two men's absences. Both were somewhere else in the Capitol Building with about 500 supporters for a "victory lap" event. Sessions was in charge of the Republican Party's strategy to take back the House, and was celebrating with Fitzpatrick and others instead of taking his constitutionally-required oath.
