Because even morons can read the Declaration of Independence

. . . which is apparently more than Gawker is capable of. Here’s the headline:

Duck Dynasty Nephew Running for Congress Says Our Rights Come From God

Hurr hurr hurr! What a idiot! Where does he get off, spouting that religious crap when errybody knows the whole reason they started this country was to get away from religion!

So maybe I drank and slept and wept my way through college, but I do remember reading this:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights…”

Not so self-evident anymore. Sorry, founding fathers. The best lack all conviction, while the worst /Are full of passionate intensity.”  And I can’t even tell which is which anymore!
