I’m very busy this week, and when I get busy, I like to relax by reading about crazy things that wingers are doing. Like this:
LUMAYE (a wingnut radio host): Let me just — to give an example just what the government can’t do — and I didn’t know this, I just found this out. And I’m not even going to pretend that I came up with this. I got it from Dr. Brannon. Stevie Wonder was given an award the other day. Right? By the president of the United —
BRANNON (a wingnut candidate for Senate): Well, he was there, yeah, for the Burt Bacharach award. Burt Bacharach got a medal for the “king of music.”
LUMAYE: Oh, it was Burt Bacharach. For the “king of music” or whatever it is.
BRANNON: And I just — and this is a small token. I’m not saying nothing wrong with that. I love Stevie’s music and all that stuff. But in Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution it says there shall be no titles of nobility given.
Reminds me a little of the Seinfeld World’s Greatest Dad episode. And, yeah, it’s nitpicking but the Brannon could become Senator in 2014.
