Life, Liberty, and Whatever, Part 3 - The Curse of Pelosi

Just over 6 years ago (holy crap has it been that long?), I blogged about some confusion over at the house organ of the left on which of the founding documents contained the words "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".
Life, Liberty, and Whatever 
Instapundit subtly points out that the NYT editorial writers (and their overseers) need to go back to school and re-take U.S. History 101.
THE NEW YORK TIMES' EDITORS think that the phrase "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" is in the Constitution. But then, they believe many things that are demonstrably untrue.
Imagined NYT response:
"Constitution, Declaration of Independence...whatever. You are taking my words out of context, and missing the bigger point....blah, blah,blah."
Flash forward to 2013, and we can still find prominent lefties who profess alleged love of the Constitution, but have no idea what is (or is not) actually in it.   Thanks to Ed Morrissey for pointing us to the confused rambling of the woman who was once only behind Joe Biden in line of Presidential succession.  Watch and shudder.... 

But, I guess when one is on the left, the correct document or citation doesn't really matter given that they like to create "rights" where there is not actual constitutional documentation to begin with. 

Update:  As linked above, additional suggested Pelosi Constitutional citations can be found at #NancyPelosiConstitutionQuotes.  My fav thus far "The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed unless you own a gun or something."
