First example: Sarah Palin told supporters at a Tea Party Express rally not to "party like it's 1773" yet. Liberals who think Palin is the next illustration of their stereotype of the "dumb conservative bimbo" had a field day with the comment.
But the libs are the ones showing their ignorance. 1773 was the year of the original Boston Tea Party.
Then, it was time for the oh-so-tolerant Left to attack that other (in their eyes) dumb conservative broad, Christine O'Donnell, for "questioning" the concept of "separation of church and state."
Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell questioned on Tuesday whether the Constitution provides for the separation of church and state.Well the joke's on you once again libs! Here's the First Amendment of the Constitution:
The comment came during a debate on WDEL radio with Democratic opponent Chris Coons, who argued that local schools should teach science rather than religion, at which point O’Donnell jumped in. “Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” she asked.
The audience at Widener Law School was taken aback, with shouts of “whoa” and laughter coming from the crowd.
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"Separation of church and state?" I don't see it there. O'Donnell is right. The term Separation of Church and State originated in an 1802 letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists, who were fearful of the establishment of the Congregationalist denomination as a national religion. The line in the Constitution was written so as to prevent just that: the establishment of a theocracy or national religion, as in England. The Founders never wanted to see religion divorced from the public life.
Contrast the mockery of O'Donnell but the crickets chirping when the liberal's intellectual giant Chris Coons couldn't even name the five freedoms enumerated in the First Amendment.
Hey libs, go back to the crayons!
