    Consider the antics of Nationally Very Important People:
    Joe Barton wants to know where the oil in Alaska came from:

    while Sarah Palin is bringing cookies to PA to protest public schools trying to provide good nutrition to their students:

    On the other hand it is hard to be sorry for some people when stuff likes this still happens:

    •  I live in Georgia-10, (5+ / 0-)

      which is represented by Paul Broun, who is only half an idiot; whenever I see and hear Joe Barton I consider myself fortunate. Barton makes Broun look like Tom Hayden.

      The loudest cries for war come from those who have never seen one.

    •  Corporal punishment (0+ / 0-)

      Is alive and well. Texas Republican party platform endorses it.  But kids should not get any medical care:

      In Texas, some Republicans — bolstered by their expanded majority in the State House — say the strings attached to Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) are bankrupting the state, which is staring down a budget hole that some have estimated as high as $25 billion. They argue that states could provide more efficient and cost-effective care for children, the disabled and the impoverished by either giving up federal matching money altogether or getting federal officials to grant states waivers to provide health care as they see fit.

      Although the federal government covers 60 percent of Texas’ costs, Rick Perry says he can do it cheaper and better without the help.  Is this hubris or what?
