What if the Constitution Had Dumb Internet Comment Threads?

Nicely done by Funny or Die. Seriously, though, it'd be good for the discourse if the Constitution was understood less as a list of providential recommendations and more as something dozens of very smart people hashed out, stressfully, with a lot of odious horse-trading, over the preference of some beloved founding fathers. Jefferson in particular believed that the Articles of Confederation were a good basis for a government and only needed to be improved upon, which is what Hamilton et al lied and said they intended to do.

Also, I have an excuse to post this.
