It had to happen, like the aligning of the planets or something: Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-Under a Stump) runs headlong into our Stupid Thing of the Week feature. They come together to display another example of colossal ignorance, or in current GOPspeak, "leadership."
The right's wingnuts have lately been pushing a bogus charge that health care reform plans include requiring senior citizens to plan how they want to die. See here for more info. Anyhow, Ms. Foxx (and do we really need to keep reminding you that, despite her name, she's not a softcore porn star?) picked up the issue and ran with it like a scalded hound, ratcheting up the rhetoric to include people being put to death by the government. Enjoy.
