Fox News invents mythical part of United States constitution

Republicans lie.--SS

Fox News invents mythical part of United States constitution:

Remember Dick Cheney inventing a brand-new fourth branch of government he alone occupied? Fox News has done him one better and actually discovered hitherto unknown parts of the constitution!

In the America I grew up in, the constitution had just seven articles, and no section numbered higher than ten. So I'm thinking there are a few possibilities here:

1) The Fox TV show Fringe is actually a documentary and I woke up in an alternate universe this morning;

2) Fox News employs the Nicolas Cage character from those idiotic-looking National Treasure movies and he's found dozens of secret pages of the constitution in James Madison's tomb; or

3) The people who write the chyrons for Fox News are actually the members of the Republican presidential primary field.

I'm open to other ideas, though. What do you think?
