43. You can't think of any principled distinction between slavery or segregation & electing youngsters
Both electing the too-young and slavery would trigger express constitutional language. Do you really thing that all things constitutional are of the same weight? that waiting until after an election is over makes no difference? Case law says that if you wait until an election law is over that's an evil.

Congress all knew of the existence of this issue, they had resolutions about it regarding McCain for example.

If you are right, let's stipulate for sake of argument that you are, then hasn't all or parts of Congress perpetrated a fraud on the American voters by allowing them to proceed with a fake election on account of "unqualified" candidates? Do you see any problem with the timing of things here at all? I don't see how anybody who wasn't anti-democratic wouldn't at least be troubled by this, even if they continue to come down in a certain way. Are you?
