Nancy Pelosi Loses Her Grip On Reality: Part II

After declaring the war in Afghanistan safely over, Nancy Pelosi is now delving into the Kelo decision, apparently violating the alleged separation of church and state in the process by deifying the Supreme Court. Does this mean when they replace Sandra Day O'Conner we have to wait for white smoke from the Capitol Building? Here is the choice quote:

Q Could you talk about this decision? What you think of it?

Ms. Pelosi. It is a decision of the Supreme Court. If Congress wants to change it, it will require legislation of a level of a constitutional amendment. So this is almost as if God has spoken. It's an elementary discussion now. They have made the decision.

Hey, I have an idea for a constitutional amendment. Oh sure, it has been tried before, but maybe if we put it in really BIG BOLD LETTERS they will pay attention to it this time.

Amendment V
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
