    Default Brennan takes oath on draft Constitution—without Bill of Rights

    Oh, dear. This is probably not the symbolism the White House wanted.

    Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office—behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America's top spy—the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.

    “There's one piece of this that I wanted to note for you,” spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at their daily briefing. “Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington's personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.”

    Earnest said Brennan had asked for a document from the National Archives that would demonstrate the U.S. is a nation of laws.

    I'm not certain there's a consequence to taking the oath on that version. The Bill of Rights really has little to do with his job.

    Well there is one thing....it wasn't the Constitution. It was merely a draft so he's legally not taken the oath yet. <shrug> I think this would make a dandy court case.
