Kevin Bleyer Rewrites the Constitution

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Daily Show writer Kevin Bleyer talks about rewriting the United States Constitution to improve upon the one we have, which has triggered more than two centuries of arguments about what it actually says. In Me the People: One Man's Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America he argues that while we think of the Constitution as a well-designed blueprint that laid the foundation for the strongest republic ever created, it’s actually more of a haphazard series of blunders shaped by petty debates, drunken ramblings, and desperate compromise.
