    I was trying to make a comment on how really stupid my US Representative is.

    [Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security] do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.

      It was this sentence that led me astray:

      People like Bachmann, and my Representative, Vicky Hartzler (she's like Bachmann but lacks Bachmann's IQ)
      Sounded like a comparison to me. Bachmann's IQ---not something I've every thought to be particularly high, is torpedoed by her lack of EQ. I would bet the same is true of your rep, without much air between the two in terms of comparison

        I have been saying this for awhile and some don't understand the irony either.

        Hartzler is really, really stupid and that is why she doesn't have the national profile of a Bachmann or Foxx or Broun or Cruz.
