These lot will do anything to get a leg up for 2012.
The Constitution says this, the Constitution says that – all from wingnuts who are getting ready to run a dumb woman for office come 2012.
It is quite amazing that they do – where were they when Bush was ripping up the US Constitution? They were quiet then – now not so much.
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Polls show that Americans overwhelmingly approve of Sen. Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, but will the founding fathers veto this popular addition to Barack Obama’s “team of rivals”?
Yes, according to one conservative interpretation of the Constitution.
Article 1, Section 6 of the Constitution says the following: “No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under the authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time.”
Translation: A lawmaker cannot fill a position if the salary for that position has been raised during that lawmaker’s term in office.
Of course – the Conservative wingnuts are the ones to interpret the US Constitution – because they are always right, or extreme-right.
The trouble here – the vast majority of Americans agree with the Clinton pick, but what does that matter? Wingnuts knows bestest!
