Stupid People Say Stupid Things

“The Constitution does not say that every citizen has the right to habeas corpus.” – Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

Unless Gonzales doesn’t believe the Constitution applies to all U.S. citizens, we need a new Attorney General that has actually read the Constitution:

Article I, Sec. 9:

“The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.”

Gee – I don’t seem to remember being invaded, or a rebellion breaking out, do you?
