If that was the goal, the entire document should have been read wihtout any editting.The chamber's Republican leaders... had touted the reading as a way to bring the country back to its political roots.
Ignoring the negative aspects of our roots is folly.

If it is not valid then what is the point of reading it? Was the 13th amendment repealed?I get that it's not Constitutional. It's quite obviously not Constitutional. It is, however, a portion of the Constitution and if the point is to remind everybody of what the Constitution says so that we can work our way back to a Constitutional government we shouldn't leave stuff like this out.
I'm not a liberal. I've said so many times. That makes you a liar.
It is quacks like a duck,acts like a duck then perhaps it is a duck.
I do not, in fact like to ignore the intentions of our forefathers. Hypocrisy aside they had a number of good ideas I'm a really big fan of.
I've got a pretty good understanding of how the Constitution works and why it works that way, I just think if they're going to do a song and dance about getting back to the basics they shouldn't ignore portions of our Constitutional history that they don't like.
This is just a piss poor attempt of yours to mock and bash republicans and nothing more. Its like calling the chief of police a hypocrite for not enforcing a no spitting on the sidewalk law that was repealed.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.
As for Rush Limbaugh....are you really that paranoid that your idol might be taken off the air? Trust me......I don't know about Al Sharpton....but Al sharpton doesn't control the Democratic party and isn't going to get your favorite right-wing propoganda off the air.
Take a deep breath....its all going to be ok.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
