C-SPAN Flogs Founding Document

We’d rather have a remix of their infamous quorum call playlist.

But, alas, C-SPAN plans to spend June 11-12 passing out 5,000 quick-flip versions of the U.S. Constitution on Capitol Hill, not ear candy.

Although its eponymous tour bus will be parked miles away at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (for the National Cable and Telecommunications Association convention), C-SPAN staffers will trek to the Capitol South and Union Station Metro stops to distribute the iconic booklets. Staffers will be handing out gratis copies from 7:45 to 9 a.m. and again from noon to 1:30 p.m. at both locations.

With the next Conservative Political Action Conference months away and ex-Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, D-Ohio, now out of the picture, this may be your only chance to pocket a piece of history without having to crash a libertarian happy hour.
