Good To See Our Legislators Take Their Jobs Seriously

State Senator proposes death penalty for littering:

“I think that if we kill just a couple of people we catch, the rest will catch on,” he said.

He called the people perpetrating the littering “white trash” and “rednecks.”

Soon after, he clarified he was joking about the bill.

“I’m doing this tongue in cheek, obviously,” he said, and withdrew the bill.

This bozo is a Republican, no less.

I am not a humourless guy, no matter what this blog might indicate otherwise, but the legislature is not the place for jokes. I mean, someone might take it seriously, and suddenly you’re passing $825 billion dollars in junk stimulus.
