If only Mark Steyn had been born in Kenya... er... I mean Hawaii

Then he could run for prez. Because he sure knows a thing or two about a thing or two. Here he is holding forth on the boggy swampy fetid mess that is Obamacare. On Hugh Hewitt:

Say what you like about the Tea Act, but it was a couple of pages long, and it was about tea, and that’s all. And that’s the way real laws are.

and OCR:

By contrast, on the Continent, where many constitutions date all the way back to the disco era (Greece, 1975; Portugal, 1976; Spain, 1978), if the establishment wants to invent a new "right" – i.e., yet another intrusion by government – it goes ahead and does so. If it happens to conflict with this year's constitution, they rewrite it. The United States is the only Western nation in which our rulers invoke the Constitution for the purpose of overriding it – or, at any rate, torturing its language beyond repair.
