Congressionally Blonde

So I turn on C-SPAN last night (I like to watch the special order speeches conducted after the end of legislative business) and caught Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's speech. She sounded like a mother teaching a child not to touch the stove when it's hot, but in a stupid valley girl sort of way. Marsha was praising the social program cuts in the proposed budget. She explained that it was important to pay down the debt and not leave it to our children. So school lunches, food stamps, Medicaid etc. all had to be cut to the bone. She never once mentioned rolling back tax cuts for the rich.

Her speech was typical wingnut bullshit; it was her attire that caught my eye. Specifically, the necklace she was wearing. A gold chain the diameter of an average human finger with a big black stone the shape of a heart dangling from it. This woman was talking about cutting programs for the poor to save tax cuts for the rich and she wears a big gold chain with a black heart on it!

Ms Blackburn, Shakespeare would be proud.

Oh the irony. It's too bad she didn't have a charm bracelet with a bitch on it.
