Overheard yesterday: "We should go back to the original Constitution, like it was in 1776."

If I had been drinking something at the time, I would have passed it through my nose. The women had been yacking constantly and mostly re-runs of teabagger shit that's been posted on DU for months. Despite my efforts to avoid them, I still kept finding myself in the same aisles because there was something I needed there. I'm not sure how, but I did manage to hold my tongue and avoid trying to educate them on simple history. It probably would have been a lost cause anyway. If I had broken down, I probably would have said something like "Oh, you mean the Articles of Confederation, but technically they weren't ratified until 1781." Most likely, I would have just gotten blank stares reflecting the empty space in their heads.
