Shit For Brains, Part 2: The Poopening

I leave it to youse gentle readers out there to decide which is more appalling -- that a chuckleheaded clown like Paul Broun sits on the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee (along with noted ladyparts enthusiast Todd Akin), or that he is running unopposed for re-election.

Since the Georgia 10th was created a few years back by gerrymandering, it has been a safe 2-1 seat for the Republicans, even with a college town (Athens) in the district. But that's no excuse; you should never concede territory, especially to a well-known buffoon who's only held the seat for two terms. Hell, even Nancy Pelosi doesn't get to run unopposed.

If they can't muster the nerve to at least pretend to try to contest Broun's seat, the least the Dems can do is stick him on a committee where he can't do any real damage. Maybe if the U.S. can drop another ten or twenty notches in science education and aptitude, we might get serious about it. In the meantime, thanks a bunch, Real America, for keeping these short-bus goofballs off the unemployment rolls.
