Constitution classes for Congress

Another entry in our ongoing “if people only knew more, they would agree with me” series: Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, founder of the House Tea Party Caucus, has announced that she will organize classes on the Constitution for the members of the next Congress.

Bachmann, like many many members of the House, has a law degree (Oral Roberts University), surely knows that most members encountered some instruction on the Constitution somewhere in their educations.  But maybe they haven’t had the right teachers.  Bachmann’s classes would be closed to the media, and the list of instructors would not be public.
