As we head into veto session and the high likelihood that Birther Tim Jones will be formally elevated to Speaker, I thought it would be a good time to have a review of the best of the worst of Birther Tim.
Of course we must start with how Jones got his "Birther" moniker: joining Birther Queen Orly Taitz's lawsuits challenging President Obama's citizenship.
Then there was that time that he lashed out in an email exchange, declaring:
Imagine that! A birther for governor in Missouri! You can read the whole exchange over on Busplunge.
Remember the time when Birther Tim concurred with Dana Loesch that the Missouri Hospital Association was a Marxist organization? Yea. MARXIST.
Of course we can't forget to mention when he said government should stop messing with health care, clearly not understanding that Medicare and Medicaid are wildly popular GOVERNMENT programs that millions of Americans depend on.
Are you starting to remember just how out there Missouri's soon-to-be Speaker is? It gets worse. You know it gets worse. More after the jump...
How about when he compared women's health care to veterinary care for farm animals? Here's the money quote:
Remember the epic tantrum that Birther Tim threw on the Floor? Where he had to be physically restraied by fellow members? This one:
And taking the
cake cheetos is definitely the full-on meltdown Jones had back in March of this year where he vowed revenge on "Nasty, lying, Cheetos stained, basement dwelling, lonely, spiteful, hateful, deceptive left wing trolls."
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm getting a little hungry and there's a bag of cheetos calling my name. Cheers!
