Silly Constitution

Michael G. Franc's NRO piece is about how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is attempting to thwart the Constitution's Origination Clause.  In Article I, the Constitution states that all revenue bills must "originate" in the House of Representatives, not the Senate.  Apparantly, Reid dismisses the restriction as a “hyper-technical budget issue.”

But Franc's title is as interesting as his subject as it suggests a great one-liner for general usage this fall by all campaigning Republicans:  "The Democrats act as if the Constitution were a Republican plot."

I like it.
