Broken Election System

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones was on MSNBC yesterday in support of Hillary Clinton, defending the distribution of a picture of Barak Obama wearing African dress. She did not directly admit that Clinton's campaign, which she referred to repeatedly as "we," released the picture, but said that the Clinton Campaign was quite okay with him being seen "wearing his native clothing" and "the clothing of his country, that's his birth nation."

No, he was born in the United States, otherwise he could not be running for president. His "native clothing" is probably, I don't know, blue jeans.

This woman illustrates just how broken our election system is, as she has actually been elected to office. With the intelligence of a carrot, and a mind the width of a 4H pencil mark, she actually won an election somewhere.
