So this happened Thursday in Portland: The orange cretin was lying and blathering and fear-mongering about our Somali neighbors - some of whom have peaceably been here for over 20 years - to a rapt audience of whoever these racist, ill-educated, uncomprehending people are when a group of protesters stood and mutely held up, echoing Khizr Khan, pocket versions of the U.S. Constitution. Because this was a Trump rally, the crowd booed, hissed, hollered "U.S.A.!", tried to rip one book from its owner and screamed, "Traitor!" as the miscreants, reportedly members of the progressive Maine People's Alliance, were hauled out. The ACLU loved it; they responded on Twitter with, "Glad to see people are standing up for constitutional principles using their ACLU pocket Constitutions!" And what's not to love:  Great visuals, unprecedented levels of irony if anyone there knew the meaning of the word. We think Constitution-waving should definitely become a thing.
