This could be considered humorous … or sad, depending on which way you look at it and maybe how your day went today. :)

Via the Washington Free Beacon, which filed this brief recap:

“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said.

That would be seven years after Jamestown, Virginia became America’s first permanent English settlement.

Oops …

Shaking my head.
