Minnesota Gubenatorial Candidate Doesn't Know Constitution

From TPM:
With the backing of Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty, the Minnesota Republican party just nominated for Governor Tom Emmer who says no federal laws should apply in Minnesota unless 2/3 of both houses of the state legislature approve the law in advance.

Ah, if only there weren't that pesky 14th Amendment to contend with. Since the Supreme Court has held that Amendment applies both rights and limits to all the states, this kind of talk just proves how far down Stupid Street some Republicans have traveled. I can't wait to read a defense of this.
