Today I’ve seen a variety of topics to choose from to write about, but when I saw this one there was no question this was it. I hail from Ohio so naturally I felt compelled to post about our illustrious Sen. Sherrod Brown, (not to be confused with Sen. Scott Brown-R-MA). Sherrod, as I affectionately call him; led the charge for a public option on healthcare as evidenced by his website. All those passionate videos and letters read from Ohioans before Congress. The huge list of his “events” on healthcare. Now that Healthcare Reform is law, Sherrod has transferred his passion to the Wall St. Reform bill. Almost every day I receive an e-mail from Sherrod, telling me how wonderful Wall St. Reform will be, which if passed, really amounts to the government takeover of up to 60% of our economy. So after Sherrod’s wonderful accomplishments, imagine my surprise and how stunned a group of interns were to hear these words from our beloved Sherrod, per the Daily Caller:
“He said that people who were opposed to health-care reform were similar to the bigots and racists that were against desegregation reform,” a Republican congressional intern who attended the lecture told The Daily Caller. The intern requested not to be named. “It was ridiculous,” he added.
Sounds like a racist remark to me, but that is my opinion. However, I’m pretty sure if GW Bush had said something like this there would be a protest on the White House lawn and elsewhere with him being burned in effigy. Same would hold true for a Republican put perhaps to a lesser degree, but a broo-ha-ha nonetheless. And I did a google search on this story. And wouldn’t you know it. Only other link I could find was on a personal blog. No main stream media, no newspapers. No nothing. Well, I’m going to put this story out there. Come on Sherrod. I live in Ohio. I help pay your salary. You’ve embarrassed your constituents, you need to apologize to those impressionable interns and to me!
