To be fair, Jon Stewart is being a little silly in his comments, though. Of course, someone can both:
1) Be for a strict enforcement of the Constitution; but
2) Think it should be amended.

  2. I don't know if you're joking or not, but when I look up "framers" it means the same thing as "founders":

    '"The 55 men at the convention are called the "Founding Fathers" of the USA, and are also known as the "Framers of the Constitution."'

  3. Not the framers of the Constitution; the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment.

  4. OK, PSH, maybe -- I had never heard that used that way before, but perhaps that was what he intended.
