To celebrate my return to blogging, I have decided to revive an old tradition I would have here, honoring the top "Twit" in news recently.
For those who don't know my policy of classifying politicians and pundits as "twits", here is a quick review: a "twit" is a politician partisan who often speaks out of one's arse and is generally ignorant or just plain moronic in their public statements.
And today's inductee into the "Twit Club" is Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield. What wonderful thing has Mr. Campfield done to earn such a prestigious title? Well, I'll let his own words (as reported by POLITICO today) speak for themselves:
"Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for `train rides’ for Jews in the 40s,"
Now, as my readers know, I'm hardly a fan of "Obamacare", including its individual mandate, and I too like the occasional political barb that ruffles folks' feathers, but to compare the sign-up of a government-run healthcare "reform" program to the forceful movement of Jews to concentration camps is a step WAY too far and honestly not even remotely clever.
Remember folks, the use of "Nazi" imagery, references or comparisons by American politicians and pundits is the surest sign of a simple mind!
