Douchebag of the Week
It’s only Wednesday, but such mind-boggling douchebaggery demands immediate recogniton. Our champion has raised douchebaggery to an art form.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Louisiana state Rep. John Labruzzo.
Worried that welfare costs are rising as the number of taxpayers declines, state Rep. John LaBruzzo, R-Metairie, said Tuesday he is studying a plan to pay poor women $1,000 to have their Fallopian tubes tied.The Republican representative, like all good comedians, is only saying what his supporters are thinking.
He said his program would be voluntary. It could involve tubal ligation, encouraging other forms of birth control or, to avoid charges of gender discrimination, vasectomies for men.
It also could include tax incentives for college-educated, higher-income people to have more children, he said.
However, it is interesting to see a Southern Republican who doesn’t oppose birth control. In some circles, Rep. Douchebag is downright progressive.
