Here’s a lesson on the Constitution that’s worthy of a Schoolhouse Rock parody if anybody can think of a word that rhymes with “Lautenberg.”

Sen. Frank Lautenberg was speaking at a Planned Parenthood demonstration and let loose with this (transcript by way of Hot Air):

The Republicans in Congress claim they’re concerned about the budget balance, but it’s a disguise! It’s not true! It’s a lie! That’s not what they want. They want — they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give it to them anyway.

Well that sure is nice of ya, Frank!

Lautenberg & company decide who’s given access to the freedoms in the Constitution? It’s not surprising that those words rolled so easily off Laut’s tongue, seeing as he was standing in front of a bus plastered with the logo of an organization dedicated to helping decide who does and doesn’t deserve the freedom to live.
