“Me the People: One Man’s Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America” by Kevin Bleyer Credit: Random House
If you view the Constitution of the United States as one of our country’s most sacred documents, you probably shouldn’t read Kevin Bleyer’s latest book. In it, the writer for “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” points out the historical document’s flaws and takes it upon himself to revise it in the satirical style that only a “Daily Show” writer could.
“We the People deserve perfection,” he says early in his book, “and Me the People shall deliver it.” Bleyer proceeds to poke fun at all seven of the Constitution’s articles and the entire Bill of Rights.
Do you think the U.S. Constitution needs to be re-written? In the past, the world looked to the document as the highest standard of democracy, is that still the case?
