How far out is Sen. Jason Rapert?

Posted By on Tue, Feb 21, 2012 at 11:11 AM

The answer to the headline question is simple: WAAAAAAAY far out.

Proof: When Debbie Pelley is quoting Phyllis Schlafly about the radical nature of your ideas, you are in Rod Serling land

They — and others far more moderate — say the idea Rapert cheerleads for a constitutional convention is nuts. There'd be no way to limit it to the Rapert-supported idea to let a majority of states control the federal budget. And that idea alone is bad enough. Next thing you know, somebody might use the convention to propose a constitutional amendment for bike lane funding.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
