Jared Loughner and Section 1 Article 10

The craziness of the Tea Party, whose latest focus has been upon Article 1 Section 10 of the Constitution, spilled over into the mind of Jared Loughner. Loughner's "handle" on Youtube, Classitup 10 and classitup10 is a reference to Section 10, which spells out the federal government's scope of authority and which has been seized upon by ' teners ' as evidence of the government's overreaching.

Teners, much like the birthers who have insisted that President Obama was not born in the United States, have been a sign of the increased craziness of the Tea Party.

Now that craziness has resulted in the murder assassination of a prime Tea Party enemy, a newly elected Congressman and of a federal judge, both Arizona residents.
