The GOP Clown Car Update for July 27, 2014

Posted: July 27, 2014 in New Post

This week on Episode 303 of The Tim Corrimal Show, the GOP Clown Car examines the curious confusion of the Tea Party’s own Rep. Curt Clawson. As if you needed more convincing that Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber were wrong in believing that ignorance prepares you for government service, enter Congressman Clawson. He is Florida’s 19th congressional district’s replacement for their former Tea Party member who found Jesus in a few lines of cocaine and a two year prison sentence. This week Mr. Clawson chaired a subcommittee hearing. Testifying for the Obama administration were Nisha Biswal, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs and Arun Kumar, Director General of the US and Foreign Commercial Service. Mr. Clawson, mistaking them for Indian officials, assured them that he was an expert on their country (which unbeknownst to him is also his country) and loved it to pieces. (Listen here) “Just as your capital is welcome here to produce good-paying jobs in the U.S., I’d like our capital to be welcome there,” he told them. “I ask cooperation and commitment and priority from your government in so doing. Can I have that?” At that moment the two witnesses had looks on their faces that said “I wonder how this guy manages to dress and feed himself” But they diplomatically informed him that his wishes were best referred to the Indian government, which, by the way, was not them. Ah, the virtues of ignorance. And thank you John McCain for your contribution to the dumbing down of America. Or is that India?
