Renaming, Amending, and "Wiki-ing" the Constitution

The Constitution is the subject of humorous treatment from John Hodgman and Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. 

The skit starts with "birthright citizenship" under the Fourteenth Amendment, then hits on Originalism and interpretation, the Second Amendment, judicial review, the First Amendment's Establishment Clause, and democratizing the document as an opensource document on the internet (including a werewolf amendment).
