THAT'S in the Constitution?

O Internets, how I love thee.

Although Bill Maher has been releasing politically embarrassing videos of Hogwarts graduate, Christine O'Donnell, I think it's safe to say that O'Donnell can embarrass herself without Maher twisting statements she made years ago.
Christine O'Donnell:" Let me just clarify. You're telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the first amendment?"
Chris Coons: "Government shall make no establishment of religion.”
Christine O'Donnell: "THAT'S in the first amendment?"
ARE YOU SERIOUS! If you're running for public office you should, at the very least, know the Constitution. I admit I don't know it myself but I'm not running to represent the People. Would you want a doctor operating on you if he/she didn't have a basic understanding of anatomy?

I know there are those who would love to interpret (maybe even rewrite) the Constitution as fully supporting the concept that America has always been (and always will be) a Christian Nation. If they truly realized how a theocracy would obliterate our cherished freedoms they might not be so gun hoe in dissolving the wall between Church and State.

It's amazing that there's a significant portion of the population at this point that talks endlessly about the Constitution without the slightest idea of what it says...

Another politician who dont know what the Constitution says? Go figure! And we wonder why this country is in the shape it is.

It is likely most of her supporters don't know that's in the Constitution.
