Do Congressmen Even Know How To Read?

Hit and Run lists blurb after blurb of Congresmen and varies and sundry other politicos that carry the Constitution in their pocket.

For Sens. Ben Nelson (D-NE) and Mark Pryor (D-AR), their pocket copy of the Constitution signed by Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) on 5/25/05 is "the ultimate sign of their new status as the chamber's lead Democratic dealmakers."

"There was not a single day of his professional life," said Seton Hall law school dean Patrick E. Hobbs, "when [Rep. Peter W. Rodino Jr.] didn't carry a copy of the Constitution in his pocket."

Senator Byrd, who keeps a copy of the Constitution in his pocket...

Now if only they would read it.
