Constitution Day 2007: A Real Celebration

As I was listening to MSNBC this morning announcing U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' resignation, I waited for over an hour to hear a commentator make mention of the historic implications of the date in which Gonzo will step down--September 17th.

Historic implications? Yes, September 17th is, and has been since 1787, the notable date in American history in which the U.S. Constitution was adopted.

Not a single commentator made mention that the Attorney General would be leaving his post on the date in which America celebrates the 220th anniversary of its most significant legal document.

What a great celebration it will be to see the second-most offender of the U.S. Constitution in the White House leave his post to return to the real world where we can only hope federal (and constitutional) laws will catch up with him.

I even looked on Senator Byrd's website to see if he made mention of the Gonzo/Constitution Day link, but he hasn't as of yet--my bet is he doesn't find Constitution Day worthy of Gonzo, either.

More on this later.
