The DSCC is hitting Colorado Republican Ken Buck on his one-time support for repealing the 17th amendment--the one that provides for direct election of Senators. Once Buck realized that this was a slightly nutjob position to run a race for Senate on, he recanted. But it's still a good ad.
As crazy as repealing the 17th amendment, or the 14th, or really any of them other than the revered 2nd, sounds, there's crazier out there.
[O]ur favorite proposed amendment was introduced by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) of Minnesota. It would prohibit the president from “entering into a treaty in which he would recognize as legal tender currency issued by someone other than the United States.”
Take that, yuan. Euro not wanted here.
What she lacks in coherency, she makes up for in creativity.
