Republicans – The Centre of The Universe

Filed under: Politics — freshlysqueezedcynic @ 2:29 pm

I’m sorry, I couldn’t leave this little beauty for long. Contrary to popular belief, Texas is not entirely full of dimwitted, rednecked good ol’ boys shooting gay terrorist flag-burners and eating whole cows in their massive hummers. To say that would be massively unfair.

However, people like Texas State Representative Warren Chisum don’t help make such perceptions go away. Mr. Chisum recently circulated a memo to the rest of his State Representatives from one Mr. Ben Bridges, a Representative from the Georgia State legislature, that, in a spendid, all-points display of right-wing insanity, not only argues that not only evolution is a dangerous liberal idea, but that the sun revolves around the earth and these two dogmas have been promulgated by a shady Jewish plot to undermine good Christian science.

Mr. Chisum, amusingly, has tried to back-away from the memo, suggesting that his staff had sent it for him and that he had not read it thoroughly. Which said a lot about Warren Chisum himself, who is, astonishingly, not a back-bench mouth-foamer but chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, who determine the spending plans for the Texas budget.

 Still, at least he’s not a flat-earther.

  2. Hey, what’s wrong with Lyndon B. Johnson? Apart from the escalation of the Vietnam War, of course.
