Wingnut lawyer screws up on camera

If you happen to have food or drink on your desk, you better put it aside as you’ll surely spill it watching a video this burning stupid.

As Schlafly is a conservative, he would undoubtedly argue that there is no right to privacy in the US Constitution (thereby justifying snooping into everyone’s sex lives), because it not explicitly mentioned. And here is Schlafly asking a different court to do the same thing.

Lastly, Schlafly is the founder of Conservapedia, a so–called “encyclopedia” that is ignorant, creationist, closed–minded, biased, and that reminds conservatives ignorant wingnuts that they are not only entitled to their own opinions, but also to their own facts.
