Read Your Constitution One More Time

The great intellectual and leader of the Republican Party/Conservative Movement, Rush Limbaugh, doesn't know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Evidence: at his CPAC speech, he said that "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" were in the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution.

Wrong. It's in the Declaration of Independence, a very different document. The President vows to defend the Constitution, not the Declaration. That makes a BIG difference.

I'm sure that there are many, many Americans who wouldn't have known that fact either. But Mr. Limbaugh claims to know so much about our government and its principles that he criticizes everybody if they don't agree with him.

So he deserves a little comeuppance here. Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
