Douchebag of the Week
Sometimes "douchebag" isn't strong enough a word. This is one of those times.
I give you the douchebag stylings of a real shitheel: Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., who used the death of a child from swine flu as an opportunity to rail against illegal immigration.
Of course, it’s sad to see a 23-month-old child die from this disease. We don’t have any specifics. I tried to find out this morning specifics about this child that has died -- whether it was someone who is from Mexico, possibly an illegal alien who has been brought into this country.Go fuck yourself, congressman.
One big problem we have in this country is an open border. The border is like a sieve, and so these illegal aliens are coming across, and I think a lot of the health care facilities throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California are going to be overwhelmed by cases coming out of Mexico -- Mexican citizens -- putting a further strain on those facilities. So, I don’t know if this child was a Mexican, or if it was an American child -- what the situation is -- but it was sad that this child died.
