Bill Of Rights Pared Down To A Manageable Six
[The Onion]:
A Republican initiative that went unopposed by congressional Democrats, the revised Bill of Rights provides citizens with a “more manageable” set of privacy and due-process rights by eliminating four amendments and condensing and/or restructuring five others. The Second Amendment, which protects the right to keep and bear arms, was the only article left unchanged.
According to U.S. Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), the original Bill of Rights, though well-intentioned, was “seriously outdated.” “Ten was just too much of a handful,” Bush added. “Six civil liberties are more than enough.”

Comedy isn’t pretty…
