It'd be funny if it wasn't so sad.

When you're watching the news, you expect to see some smart people, some average people, some stupid people, and occasionally an utter imbecile, making pronouncements on assorted subjects. But this is one of the few times I've seen someone say something inherently self-contradictory and utterly nonsensical as if it were an actual argument. The story I am speaking of was on my local CBS news, an interview with the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, who made a Ten Commandments monument in the state judicial building. You may have heard about it. The intro featured footage of the protesters outside the judicial building, then cut to a close-up of one of them who asserted that the judges shouldn't go by "Man's law," but instead by the Constitution.

Great hula-hooping saints add preservatives to us.
