Hmmm . . . is leaving out a significant portion of the Declaration of Indpendence a "gaff?" Not if you do it three times. You're either embarassingly ignorant or intentionally distorting. Pay attention at about 1:15 into the video. Let's see how many of the "professional" historians point this out. Probabaly about as many as were concerned about public school teachers distorting the Constitution, which I pointed out in this post. Yes, the citizen-organized, grassroots Tea Party are a bunch of know-nothing Bozos when it comes to our history, but a Harvard educated, constitutional law professor, and former U.S. Senator just misspoke. I guess he left the teleprompter at home.
