Me So Hornung, Me Love You Long Time!

Andy Hornung, aka “Horndog”1, is a would-be James Madison without the talent or writing ability.
Shorter Andy Hornung, We Declare
A New Declaration of Independence
Hey, guys! Let’s write us a rightwing constitution and secede. How can it fail? Guys? Hellooo? Where’d you all go?
See, the thing is, where Madison created the structure of a new government using existing ideas in an exciting new blend2 which was remarkably equitable for its time and more-or-less an attempt at allowing many political standpoints to flourish, Andy Hornung has basically looked at Glenn Beck and said, “Hey, we should make a government that’s like this guy!”3
Hornung’s proposed Constitution is essentially the attempted codification of rightwing talking points into government, which is ironic, given the radically non-conservative roots of the US Constitution he otherwise claims to revere.
I award Andy’s paper, “What I Did Over the Summer: Started a Constitution!” a better grade than it deserves:
Good that he made some effort, but Andy’s intelligence level and writing ability probably belong in the remedial class.
1Known by me as that, because I haz a snark.
2“Try our all new Constitution coffee! Mmm, tasty!”
3“But where will we find enough rightwing douchebags to support our new constitution and fetishize it until their ears bleed? Hmmm… Hmmm… Aha! I have it! The Libertarian Party!”
