John Boehner delayed one of his 119 annual golf rounds yesterday to bring his orange-glow to Meet the Press. As usual he managed to say something ridiculous — this time without crying.

GREGORY: Do you support efforts to have the 14th amendment amended at this point?…

BOEHNER: Listen, I think it’s worth considering. It’s a serious problem that affects our country, and in certain parts of our country, clearly our schools, our hospitals are being overrun by illegal immigrants…

Yes, some people with an identifiable skin tone not usually confined to the Wonka factory are alleged to have done something that barely affects white people but bothers some of them nonetheless.

By GOD let’s change the Constitution!

Meanwhile, we cannot even get Republicans (and too many Democrats) to even read the first half of the Second Amendment. Not that it is considered polite to ask them to do so. They might level their .38 special at you for your impertinence.
