Salon political reporter Alex Pareene:
[T]he Constitution is archaic and boring and lots of it no longer applies anymore.
Sadly, this sort of attitude is all too common among the Washington press corps. Former Newsweek writer Ben Adler argued last fall that it was "dangerous" for Congress to require itself to justify legislation by citing the Constitutional clause authorizing the law. And WaPo blogger Ezra Klein called the Constitution "confusing because it was written more than one hundred years ago."

I've previously detailed the brilliance and proper application of our Constitution. Better still is Iowahawk's masterful parody Ezra Klein student essay called "The Constitution is very important." It's six months old but worth re-reading for its perfect take on how little the progressive press know or care about the process of government.
