Just when I thought there could be no bigger wiener than Wiener, along comes this utter prick:
Seriously, I don't care if you are a Republican or Democrat--you will treat your constituents with respect. These college kids have every right--and certainly more than most lobbies--to come ask for a piece of the pie. All this Senator had to do was say thank you for your time. I appreciate your enthusiasm and we will consider your position.
Instead, he says this in a dripping with contempt tone:
"I do not like it when students actually come here and lobby me for funds. That's just my opinion. I want to wish you guys the best. I want you to go home and graduate. But this political fear, leave the circus to us OK? Go home and enjoy yourselves. I want to thank you for joining us and though I have to concede, your time speaking before us is kind of a tad intense. It's probably a pretty new experience. You probably prepared for it for days and you sat there in front of us trying to make sure your remarks were just right, and that's a good thing. But actually spending your time worrying about what we're doing up here, I don't want you to do that. Go back home. Thanks guys."Seriously, you are telling your constituents and voters to go home? No wonder some people see conservatives as out of touch.
Senator SHAWN HAMERLINCK? I am ashamed I share the same party as you.
Have I mentioned you can vote daily for little ol' me at Top Political Mom Blogger at Circle of Moms?
Thanks so much for all your votes already. I feel like such a big girl blogger! Heh!
