112th TO READ CONSTITUTION ON HOUSE FLOOR, LTC LAKIN GETS FAMILY VISIT AT LEAVENWORTH--UPDATED--OUTBURST FROM GALLERY!
Day two for the 112th congress will be most interesting as well as historic. Members will read aloud the entire U.S. Constitution, something that's never been done in the history of the house. (I read somewhere that it's never been done before.) NPR reports--Hey, you're paying for it.
A question comes to my mind: Who gets to read Article 2, Section 1? Wouldn't it be ironic if LTC Terry Lakin's congressional rep drew that assignment? All irony aside, Rep Bill Posey of Florida's 15th would be my choice.
In related news, The Radio Patriot reports that LTC Lakin had his first family visit since being imprisoned at Fort Leavenworth.
UPDATE: Article 2, Section 1 was read by Rep Frank Pallone from New Jersey's 6th district. During his reading, there was an outburst from the gallery that caused the reading to be halted until the Speaker regained control. The SGT-AT-ARMS was ordered to remove the offending citizen(s) from the gallery.
Will Bill O'Reilly (Ted Baxter) pull out the PINHEAD label for those shouting from the gallery? The Vegas money's on "yes."--The Radio Patriot has more.
