Since the Republicans — with the help of those Revolutionary-War reenactors

in the tea party — scored big in the 2010 elections, they’ve been

bringing up the U.S. Constitution a lot.

Incoming House Speaker John

Boehner pushes the GOP “Pledge to America” promise “to honor the Constitution as constructed by its framers

and honor the original intent of those precepts that have been

consistently ignored…” Congresswoman Michele Bachmann wants a “Constitutional Conservative Caucus” and classes on the Constitution for Congressional freshmen. When they talk about Obamacare, they increasingly argue that it has to be repealed because it’s unconstitutional. Etc.

You can get some sense of conservative seriousness about the

Constitution from the first big civil liberties issue since the election

to inflame rightbloggers: the newly enhanced security screenings at

airports, which sometimes involves the touching of junk.
