This is remarkable, because we almost certainly will rewrite the Constitution of the United States. I mean, we’ve already done it 27 times — including to recognize women’s right to vote for the candidates of their choice, even if those candidates are idiots who tweet things like this:
What prompted Sen. Blackburn’s ahistorical brain fart? Well, it’s Constitution Day! The day we honor the perfect founding document that never needed any editing, except for all the slavery stuff and a few other really embarrassing things we’d rather not talk about.

Thanks for letting me know about the Constitution, Marsha Blackburn! Sure, I’ll “Google it online,” as you say. (Not sure where else I might Google something. Not sure I really want to know.) And I’ll pay particularly close attention to this bit:
Article VThe Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.
Of course, Twitter was equal parts amused and bemused:

Another Republican own goal.
Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.

Sometimes I laugh so hard I cry” ) and thousands of others already know — AJ Pennyfarthing’s acclaimed Trump books are “hysterically funny” and “cathartic.” Preorder the finale in the series, Goodbye, Asshat, and scoop up your copies of Dear Fcking Lunatic, Dear Fcking Moron, and Dear Pr*sident A**clown today!
