With apologies to the original Superman TV show…

Given what’s happened to the First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, and Fifth Amendment in recent years, and considering what the President would like to do to the Second Amendment, let’s enjoy some humor.

Faster than a writ of habeas corpus! More powerful than the Tenth Amendment! Able to leap the enumerated powers clause in a single bound! (“Look! Up in the sky!” “It’s a bird!” “It’s a plane!” “It’s SuperPresident!”)… Yes, it’s SuperPresident … strange visitor from corrupt Chicago, who came to Washington with powers and hubris far beyond those of the Founding Fathers! SuperPresident … who can change the course of the Constitution, bend the Bill of Rights in his bare hands, and who, disguised as Barack Obama, mild-mannered uniter who stops the rise of the oceans and heals the planet, fights a never-ending battle for redistribution, statism, and the French way! And now, another exciting episode, in The Adventures of SuperPresident!

And look what SuperPresident is doing now!

In the interests of full disclosure, I can’t take credit for the image, which showed up in my inbox. But I did concoct the parody of the opening of the Superman show, so I’ll take 10 percent credit for any humor in this post.
