Craziest Republican of the Day: Mike Lee

In an interview on MSNBC's Hardball yesterday evening, tenther Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) admitted that he is using the threat of a catastrophic default to extort the nation into rewriting the Constitution to force a permanent era of conservative governance:

Chris Matthews: How many days do you think we have, on the outside, to get this debt ceiling through before we have a problem? How many days?

Lee: I don't know, maybe ten days.

Matthews: Okay, in ten days you want to change the United States Constitution by two-thirds vote in both houses? That's what you're demanding.

Lee: Yes. If possible we can't change the Constitution just in Congress but we can submit it to the states. Let the states fight it out.

Matthews: And you think you're being reasonable by saying you want a two-thirds vote in the House, which is Republican, and in the Senate which is Democrat. You want the Democratic Senate, by a two-thirds vote, to pass a constitutional amendment or you want the house to come down?

Lee: Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying and I've been saying this for six months.

This guy's crazy stupid and crazy ignorant, but another word for this is treason.

  • Oh, yes, the ignorance.

    Here's a Republican willfully pushing American into default.

    There's no excuse for that.
