Rockefeller: Fascist AND Clueless!

CensoredI have often found it ironic that the President, Vice-President, and members of Congress take an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, even though it is patently obvious that they have only the vaguest idea what’s in it.  Joe Biden proved me right on this point when, during the Vice-Presidential debate in 2008, pontificated about the Constitution while making error after pathetic error.  Then there is my own Representative in Congress, Jim McGovern (D-MA), who said during a debate just weeks ago that he believed “the Constitution is wrong.”

What is it about power or the prospect of power that makes presumably reasonable people yearn for tyranny (to their own tastes, of course)? I don’t know, but whatever it is, there seems to be a lot of it going around Washington. Check out this video featuring Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), who quite possibly has never read the Bill of Rights.

There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: “Out. Off. End. Goodbye.” It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.

That free speech and free press thing? That’s only if you’re being nice. You know, like our President.

Ironically, and I’m sure with more than a little satisfaction, Fox News notes that the Federal Communications Commission “only regulates broadcast airwaves, not cable.” Oops. Looks like Rockefeller hasn’t read the Communications Act, either.
