Do you believe that this exists?

Congratulations: you’re a ‘Tenther,’ which is liberal Democrat for ‘annoyingly tiresome about us ignoring Constitutional clauses that we don’t like.’ The attempt here is equate federalism with conspiracy theorists* – but like Radley Balko and Glenn Reynolds, I would like to note for the record that yes, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution actually exists. I have even seen it, with my own two eyes. In Washington, DC. Admittedly, I didn’t take a picture of it at the time.
On the bright side, this attempted sneer, or smear, is about as likely to shut up the growing populist movement in this country as anything else did; which is to say, not at all.
*Like, say, the approximately one-third of the Democratic party that believes that the US government was behind 9/11.
