WTF #12

By lephead - Posted on 02 July 2009

And they keep rolling in.  According to this video from the Colbert report, this Missouri State Representative is using the dodge of "hunger can be a positive motivator" as a moniker to deny funding of children's nutritional programs.  She's even in a leadership position in the Republican Party!

I think Olbermann named her "Worst Person in the World" twice for this-- once for the statement itself and again for trying to justify it and/or blaming the critics for taking her out of context/whatever.

In essence she is playing the same card Bachmann often plays, the "intrusion of the evil federal government" card. Maybe she fears the government might interfere in some way with her church?


It's sad that we've reached a point where 'government service' is a dirty word... If we're the greatest country on earth, maybe we can have the greatest government.

Lewis Black

Oh the republicans! Gotta love'em.,


 I will not throw the first punch but I wil certainly throw the last.....President Barack Obama.
