Wow, Representative Spencer Bachus (R-AL), in discussing gambling on the intertubes, sounds like the next Ted Stevens!
Radley Balko begins:
I just received the transcript to my testimony before Congress earlier this month on Internet gambling.
I thought you might enjoy one of the odder exchanges I had at the hearing. The exchange was with Rep. Spence Bachus, and I guess this was supposed to be his “gotcha” question for me. To be honest, I was so floored by the sheer ignorance of the question, I didn’t quite know how to respond.
Stevens might have had his bridge, but Bachus has a brain to nowhere.
Shine on, Alabama, shine on!
(It’s not like Colorado can talk: we do have Marilyn Musgrave and Tom Tancredo after all).
