The understatement of the year

Of course this is a political ploy. Sodrel is a first term incumbent who narrowly defeated Baron Hill. Hill is running again and figures to give him quite a match. NPR picked up on this story today as well. I imagine the audio will be available tomorrow.

As an aside, I knew a guy who worked for Sodrel's trucking firm a few years ago. The guy told me he had filed for a divorce and had started to date another woman. Sodrel fired him because he was still married and his eyes he was an adulterer, so that just shows you what kind of schmuck Sodrel is.

ACLU: Sodrel prayer bill is a political ploy

A proposal that would bar federal judges from ruling on the content of prayer in state legislatures is a political ploy and an attempt to end-run the constitution, the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana said today.

U.S. Rep. Mike Sodrel, a Republican, has introduced legislation he said would prevent federal courts from ruling on the content of speech in legislatures.
The proposal is a response to a November ruling by U.S. District Judge David Hamilton, who said the official Indiana House proceedings could not begin with prayers that mention Jesus Christ or endorse any particular religion.

I'm glad they're all out there fighting the important fights.

This appears to be just the type of bill State Level Democrats from California could get behind to fend off attacks from the Bush Administration and its Judicial Appointments.

Well, it's obvious that this guy knows jack about the Constitution. Of course, how many in Congress do?

I think once you're elected to a federal position you're forcibly lobotomized to forget about the Constitution.
