I mentioned this incident briefly yesterday, you know, the one where Herman Cain channels Sarah Palin and confuses the Constitution with the Declaration of Independence, but never got around to posting it as a quote.
So here we are, quoting GOP presidential hopeful, Herman Cain, as he confused the Constitution for the Declaration at a rally in Atlanta on Sunday, via Think Progress:
We don’t need to rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America, we need to reread the Constitution and enforce the Constitution. … And I know that there are some people that are not going to do that, so for the benefit of those who are not going to read it because they don’t want us to go by the Constitution, there’s a little section in there that talks about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You know, those ideals that we live by, we believe in, your parents believed in, they instilled in you. When you get to the part about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” don’t stop there, keep reading. Cause that’s when it says “when any form of government becomes destructive of those ideals, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.” We’ve got some altering and some abolishing to do!
