Does anyone remember the book about the constitution that was recommended by one of Dave Siroda's Friday guests last week?

Supposed to be a must read for a good understanding of the constitution.

David was Thursday, it was Karl Frisch Friday.

Frida's book was "America's Constitution: A Biography" by Akhil Reed Amar.

I don't know what DS recommended... but I recommend The Frozen Repubic by Daniel Lazare. It looks at the reform-proof nature of the US political system. It's a must read.

Which brings me to Thom. He seems oblivious to how the two party system and our anti-democratic, reform-proof system are at the root of our problems. Instead he seems determined to fight conservatives over the right to claim the Founders/Framers' legacy. He even supports the EC which gave us Bush2. He seems to believe if we just take over the Democratic Party and make some minor reforms, everything will be OK.

I could not disagree more.
