Bourgeoise Smarm And The Persistent Platitudinousness Of American Conservatives

Alan: Republicans are equally platitudinous about their two sets of scripture: the US Constitution and the Bible. 

Just as they proclaim Jesus Christ to be their personal Lord and Savior -- and assume this proclamation is all they need do to be "Saved!" -- they harbor the analogous belief that political salvation is guaranteed by waving a copy of the constitution (while holding a flag in the other hand) and - VoilĂ ! - they're a patriot. 

Conservatism distills to bible-banging with one hand, and constitution-banging with the other. 

As for any real substance… F*ck that!
