Here’s my favorite headline of the day, from Think Progress, about Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller from Alaska.

Joe Miller Thinks His Own Senate Race Should Be Unconstitutional

Miller supports repealing the 17th Amendment to the Constitution which provided for the direct election of Senators by the public instead of state legislatures appointing them.

It’s a position favored by many self-described tea partiers, including many in North Carolina, like Republican state House candidate Glen Bradley.

    Glen Bradley is correct, and if you look at what repealing the 17th would do for the individual state then even the left would be onboard.
    NC could dump “No Child Left Behind”. We could tell the feds to go p&*@SS up a rope when they threatened NC with withholdings from monies that we’ve paid into their system for roads – welfare entitlements they’ve burdend us with and so on…..

    I just figure that in 10 years, once we’ve gotten our State and our Nation back on track, then we can START a discussion on this issue with the American people. I will only be in the State House for a maximum of six years. So why is this even an issue in this election (much less for this seat) unless it’s just another fear tactic being deployed in a desperate attempt to hang on to unmerited power?
