Joe Klein, reportedly, has “sat on” Teleprompter Boy’s Columbia thesis since 2007.
Here’s the money quote from it:
“… the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy.”
The “so-called Founders.” The Founders “did not allow for economic freedom.” “Supposedly” political freedom is a cornerstone of the Constitution. Darn it, “the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned” in the Constitution. The Constitution fitted those who believed the document gave them liberty, instead, with “the shackles of hypocrisy.”
Whew! Lots to unpack there.
Rush talked about it today, too.
