How does MSNBC stay on the air?

According to Rachel Maddow, "the U.S. Constitution doesn't have a preamble."



We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

If it weren't for her, and bathtub boy (Keith Olbermann), there would be no comedy left on television. Hey, PMSNBC, how are those ratings holding up?

However, in fairness to all, it should be noted that Boehner is quoting the Declaration of Independence while calling it the Constitution. But then again, he is just a Congressman. He's not expected to know what the Hell he's talking about.

Though I found your anti-MSNBC rant to be useless and more than a little bit of a stretch, I do have to say that I found the two blatant examples you highlighted of failure in the basic system of education in the U.S. -- and how it cuts across the entire political spectrum -- to be utterly fascinating. Maddow goofs on the Constitution having a preamble, Boehner goofs on quoting from the Preamble...

Obviously both Maddow and Boehner would benefit from Schoolhouse Rock in intense doses. ;-)
