Constitution Abruptly Amended

Virginia Representative and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, along with a small group of his congressional colleagues, this morning proposed a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution containing a stipulation that it be directly ratified pending the failure of the Senate or state legislatures to take immediate corrective action.

Constitutional scholars, academics and attorneys expressed their concern over the unprecedented circumvention of the established proposal and ratification process, yet were quickly silenced when the increasingly activist Supreme Court intervened to resolve the controversy.

At a press conference that shortly followed, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced the majority opinion “Stevens and I flipped for it and he lost, so there you go, law of the land, Booyah!” Justice Clarence Thomas had no comment.
