Wingnut of the Day
Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC):
Repeat after me: The scary black man in the White House is going to kill old white people (mostly in Red States).
This is not Foxx’s first exhibition of batshit insanity:
And then there’s this:
I’m guessing she was yammering about the TARP.
And if you’re still uncertain she’s worthy of WOTD honors:
In fact when 11 members of the KKK Caucus in the House were the only members to vote against aid to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, crazy Virginia Foxx may not have brought her sheets but she was in the forefront of the lunatic fringe racists (Lynn Westmoreland R-GA), Joe Barton (R-TX), Steve King (R-IA), Tom Tancredo (R-CO), Scott Garrett (R-NJ), etc). 213 of her fellow Republicans joined all 196 Democrats to pass the bill 410-11. And in case anyone missed the point, ole Virginia was one of only 33 die-hard segregationists to vote against extending the Voting Rights Act. It passed 390-33 but all kinds of racist slime stood with Foxx against it– all the regular suspects, from Westmoreland, Tancredo, King and Garrett to Patty McHenry (R-NC), Gary Miller (R-CA), Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Jo Bonner (R-AL), Tom Price (R-GA), John Linder (R-GA), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Nathan Deal (R-GA), Phil Gingrey (R-GA), John Shadegg (R-AZ), etc.
Even from a red state, it confounds me how such people are elected to any position, much less the House.
