You Know It's Bad

Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), of all people, talking sense about Senator Joe Lieberman's (I-CT) proposal to strip alleged terrorists of their citizenship:
"If they're a U.S. citizen, until they're convicted of some crime, I don't know how you would attempt to take their citizenship away," House Republican Leader John A. Boehner (Ohio) told reporters Thursday, according to Bloomberg News. "It would be pretty difficult under the U.S. Constitution."

Sentence first, verdict later, as the Queen says.

If you've seen the clip of that, it's pretty great. There was just this... petulant twist to his face and voice... as if to say "You know that pesky Constitution, always giving rights to those the mob despises."
