Virginia Foxx & Humpty Dumpty, Together Again

NC-5 Rep. Virginia Foxx published a guest editorial in today's Winston-Salem Journal in which she came out publicly and agreed with the impeccable logic of the most cracked character in "Alice in Wonderland": "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone," it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less" (HT: MW).

Apparently, none of us actually heard her say what the entire nation heard her say.


By sundown (I believe) the chair of the Watauga County Democratic Party had posted a rebuttal containing (interestingly) a solemn pledge offered for V. Foxx's signature ... that she won't continue accepting her own government-run health insurance until all her constituents who have no health insurance have the option of purchasing government-run insurance at least as good as hers.
