King George, Indeed 

Much thanks to alert reader Mixter who, in a diabolical attempt to ruin my day, drops this bombshell:


Mr. HOYER (for himself, Mr. BERMAN, Mr. SENSENBRENNER, Mr. SABO, and
Mr. PALLONE) introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution."
Here is the relevant part of the text of the 22nd amendment:
"No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once."
Sensenbrenner, you may recall fondly, was the dish that ran off with spoon in the middle of the Patriot Act sunsetting hearing, taking your right to representation with him. May we dare to suspect he has thoughts of a coup in mind here? Installing George as monarch? Or simply ensuring that the reactionary Right consolidates its power and never has to let go? Has this crossed anybody's radar in the MSM yet?

Terms limits were conceived as a way to safeguard against such possibilities. Check out U.S. Term Limits's website and find out more about why this should be everyone's concern.
