Ezra Klein: Constitution too hard to understand

Ezra Klein is one of the goto guys on the Left for all things policy related and he is being asked to talk about how the Republicans will have the Constitution read aloud in Congress. He says it’s a gimmick, but then he says this:

The issue with the Constitution is not that people don’t read the text and think they’re following it. The issue with the Constitution is that the text is confusing because it was written more than a hundred years ago.

Ah that’s the problem. Liberals are just stupid! That would explain a lot you know. This whole separation of Church and state has been completely misinterpreted and it’s implementation stands to support Klein’s reasoning here. I’ve always thought the first amendment was pretty dang clear, but I guess I never realized how difficult it was being a liberal trying to read those 100+ year old documents.
