WaPo and Newsweek columnist as well as MSNBC contributor Ezra Klein claims that it’s impossible to understand the US Constitution because it’s over 100 years old.

An effective argument, provided he’s lobbying to get a White House nomination for the next SCOTUS opening:

The Constitution is over 100 years and as such doesn’t make sense anymore? Saul Alinsky’s over 100 years old too but Klein doesn’t seem to have much trouble relating to him. It’s not the age the left fears, it’s the constraint of the content.

A breakdown of the indecipherable complexities of the Constitution from Stephen Gutowski:

But lets cut Ezra some slack. I mean just look at the first amendment. It’s confusing as hell:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

“Congress shall make no law”. What in the world could that mean?

Beware those who can make complete sense out of a 2500-page health care bill and bloated tax code but who say it’s impossible to decipher the massive six-page US Constitution.
