That Pesky Constitution

Why do conservatives hate the United States Constitution so much? Every time some part of it interferes with what they really want, they make up all sorts of arguments about how it screws up the country. Whether it's the right to privacy, abortion rights, censoring pornography, even going back a generation to civil rights for minorities and women, the whine is always the same. Who cares what the constitution says?

With the arrest of a suspect in the failed Time Square bombing we are, once again, facing a complaint about the Miranda warnings. One has to wonder. Prisons in the US are filled to overflowing, literally, with people who were read their Miranda rights. Do they not get that?

Probably not.
