Heads we Lose, Tails we Lose


John Rosenthal of Transatlantic Intelligencer reports that the proposed European Constitution is being attacked as an American Plot ™ and that the opposition is also an American Plot ™!

I tried to read the proposed constitution a while back, there seems to be an awful lot of noise for a constitution with 20 year shelf life. It is way to top heavy of on what should be legislative items. It contains extremely cumbersome procedures, which should keep lawyers in full employment. I hope the Charter of Human Rights is using formalisms common in Europe, which have well defined meanings, I’m not sure what it means in operational terms.

The European Union does need a good constitution. But if this one passes I hope they realize it is their own doing and not an American Plot ™.
