Hypocrisy Watch

NYTimes quoted a certain local Congresswoman late last night RE the health insurance reform bill:
Representative Virginia Foxx, Republican of North Carolina, said it was "one of the most offensive pieces of social engineering legislation in the history of the United States."

Let's see now: the interference of the Republican Congress in the Terri Schiavo case in March 2005 was not, then, the most obnoxious "social engineering legislation in the history of the United States"? We watched Bobblehead Foxx cheerleading in the U.S. House through that particular debate.

She's against "social engineering legislation," except when she's for it.

I remember when she wanted to amend the constitution to prohibit flag burning.....which is the correct way to dispose of the American flag.

That is Virginia in a nutshell.  She wants to make headlines and get people all stirred up -- only she doesn't bother to get the facts straight.
