That is Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson. She is stupid. Let me tell you why. As if it’s not already painfully evident…
SOURCE: Yahoo News!
Like other freshman lawmakers, newly elected Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson ran for Congress on a vow to change Washington. But her first order of business has nothing to do with health care, education or the usual mix of issues that come up in the early days of a new Congress.
Instead, Wilson’s first goal is to overturn a rule that blocks her from wearing a hat on the House floor. The freshman Democrat is pressing incoming House Speaker John Boehner to overturn the rule, which dates back to the 1800s, or at least to make an exception for her. But it’s unclear whether Boehner — who, in any event, will likely have plenty of priorities ahead of a rule-change request from a member of the opposition party — could do anything, shy of a full floor vote, to overturn the House’s hat ban.
ARE. YOU. EFFING. KIDDING ME?
I mean, I would be all for Rep. Wilson’s campaign if the state of Florida didn’t rank next to-next to-next to-next to-next to last in State SAT scores.
I would be all for it if Florida didnt rank in the top 5 states for violent crimes according to a 2009 US Census Bureau Study.
I might even be for it if Florida didn’t rank 47th, out of 50 for you geography whizzes, for total unemployment rank. (Florida sits at 11.9% while California is right behind them at 12.4%)
I COULD even make the stretch and be ok with her idiocracy if even ONE of her hats were as awesome as the one Aretha Franklin wore on Inauguration Day.
But alas, Frederica seems to mainly stay in the garrishly comical sequined cowboy hat domain. As evident by this photo gallery..

I really and truly wish this was funny. But it’s not. I don’t care if you are Democrat, Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Tea Party, Foam Party or Lemon Party, Frederica’s dumb ass hat campaign ranks near the top of political stupidtude. There is not a flight of stairs tall enough for me to push her down that would be satisfactory.
And don’t for a minute try defend her “sexist” claim towards this rule. Like it’s some radical womens lib act. The late great George Carlin spoke eloquently about pseudo-feminist radical acts in a bit he did about women with hyphenated names which I think is appropriate in this case…
“We don’t acquire personal dignity by adding a name to your name! Feminists think it’s a radical act! It’s not! Castrating a guy in a parking lot with a Coke bottle is a radical act! Hyphenating a name is pretentious bullshit!”
And so is Rep. Wilson’s hat crusade. Pretentious bull shit. And as is the case with most everything I encounter in this country on a daily basis, Mr. George Carlin sums up the bullshit perfectly. Thank you George, we miss you buddy.
