Speaking of ignorant

Posted By on Tue, Nov 11, 2008 at 10:01 AM

The Southern political culture. Guns. Fear of Obama. Thanks to JB from Lower Ark. who directs me to the words of U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, recently elected, 61-39, to a second term in Congress from Georgia. Check it out:

A Republican congressman from Georgia is calling President-elect Obama a Marxist and warning that he might be planning to form a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule as a dictator.

Like the sound of that? Broun has more good ideas:

Among the legislation he introduced or signed onto were constitutional amendments banning gay marriage and requiring Congress to balance the federal budget; and bills that would outlaw abortion, replace income taxes with a national sales tax, ban the sale of Playboy on military bases, restrict the travel of leaders from nations that sponsor terrorism and use local police to enforce immigration law.

I hear Bentonville calling.

Get even with the likes of Broun. Buy one of these stickers from Rick Baber.
