    if this shit were to be pulled. We had to rewrite our Constitution in 72 specifically to get rid of this kind of shit.

    Small varmints, if you will.

    •  Interesting you would bring up Montana (7+ / 0-)

      Wasn't it william (i think) clark who stood in the back of the MT legislature handing out $1,000 to any legislator who would support his appointment to the US senate - which indirectly prompted the establishment of the 17th amendment?  If my Thom Hartmann education is correct - I think that is so.

      And there has been an attempt to repeal 17 in MT
      Montana Legislature
      Bill SJ10 to Repeal 17th Amendment - 2003
      Sponsor: State Senator Jerry O'Neil
      Didn't pass - but he vowed to bring it back again.

      The crazies are everywhere, it's up to the constituents to watch them and stop them.
