(24 minute video--critical quote at 6:00)

Self-dubbed "The Three Tenors" of talk radio (a bad analogy, as the actual Three Tenors were talented and at the top of their field, and these jokers are...well, you know, hacks), Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved went to Minnesota to stump for the trio of Michelle Bachmann, Norm Coleman and Erik Paulsen. Prager apparently has a rather different reading of the Constitution than most people:

Prager, who calls Bachmann a “wonderful, wonderful extraordinary human being,” addressed the brouhaha by telling how he would’ve dealt with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews — by asking Matthews if he believes there are “American values” in the first place; if Matthews agrees, then “logic 1.1″ dictates that some people must hold anti-American values.

He added that both parties once upheld the “American value system” — the Democrats in the era of Kennedy and Truman — but the “Sixties Generation, the radicals, have taken over one of our two parties. They must be stopped!” People who “vote blue,” he added, “don’t know they’re voting radical.”

No fan of the Enlightenment, Prager added, “Equality, which is the primary value of the left, is a European value, not an American value.

Wow. So I guess that Congress was being oh so continental when they wrote this:

Amendment XIV

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Remind me again who hates American values?
