Meaning of Constitution lost in 2011

Rush Limbaugh has a question he likes to repeat, in mockery of President Barak Obama: "How's that hope and change working out for you?" This is fitting. Sadly, there is one question America's most popular neocon will probably never utter: "How's that Constitution working out for you?"

The U.S. Constitution, in most of its details, is almost never criticized. It has nearly become an object of worship itself, as though it were writ by the finger of God and delivered by Him to the members of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, who then, like so many latter-day Moseses, came out from their sacred meeting room in Sinai-en-Philadelphia to deliver this new revelation to the frightened, helpless masses.
