What Most Political Scientists Won’t Tell You

Straight from The Whore’s Mouth

The liberal journal, Mother Jones, ran a story this issue that is worth spending some electrons on.

In a story on their Diddly Awards , MJ, listed quotes that were winners in the contest. The “heck of a job” badge for political euphemism went to Hillary Clinton.

The Republicans, in my mind, though, won for the best “Diddly” truth.

The “Truth in Politics” award goes to Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Fla.), for her reply when asked after a speech how she would describe what she does in Congress:

“I’m a hooker.”

She elaborated on her trope by explaining just what she believes a congressional representative’s job to be:

“That’s right, I said I’m a hooker,” she insisted to her stunned audience. “I have to go up to total strangers, ask them for money, and get them to expect me to be there when they need me. What does that sound like to you?”

As Joe Friday used to say: “The truth, mam, just the truth.”
