But Did She Whinny?

For the privilege of having Virginia Foxx in Washington representing the NC-5, we pay her -- what? -- $168,000 per annum. The U.S. House of Representatives has been in session exactly 80 days THIS WHOLE YEAR, including yesterday, when they spent hours debating whether people should or should not eat horses. This was a Republican-sponsored bill brought to the head of the legislative line in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. On final passage more Republicans voted against it -- 110 -- than voted for it -- 106. The Madam, rested up after 15 days of vacation, voted against the bill. Frankly, The Madam doesn't care whether you eat a horse or not. But she's personally going to sponsor legislation to turn Bo Derek into tasty giblets.
