Shouldn't be such a bibliophic . . . . you know, just in case. Point was, it frees up a hand - sometime associated with oathtaking - to put behind your back and cross your fingers.

Without the amendment you have one of two things: many committee appointees serving without signing any oath, or the subsequent removal of all these members because of their unwillingness to sign w/o the amendment.
So we make the oath a smorgasbord?

Why not? It would be interesting to see people's oath's if they were all individually drafted...

I have no clue why only my name was mentioned in the WSJ article, perhaps to raise the ire of the conservaties?

Who are the conservaties?

Huh? You revived a 11-year-old thread in order to point out a typo?

It was made by Brenda so seemed timely. Not much else happening here anyway.
