North Carolina state Senator Bob Rucho offered some interesting musings regarding “Obamacare” over the weekend, and SPOILER ALERT: it involves Hitler.
Rucho, confusing “then” and “than” (and has/have) like most imbeciles who rail against the health care law, tweeted on Sunday morning that:
That’s right, folks- providing health care to millions is worse ‘than’ the systematic elimination of an entire race, the damage the United States did to itself with the Red Scare, and the ultimate boogeyman: terrorism. Rucho’s position is no surprise. He did, after all, sponsor a bill to stop North Carolina from setting up its own health care exchange and, of course, prevented North Carolina from participating in the Medicaid expansion.
About 337,000 North Carolinians lost out in the state’s refusal to take part. At least Rucho managed to hit all the Teabagger trigger words correctly.
As a dentist, Rucho certainly has demonstrated his understanding of his constituents’ basic health needs. The Twitterverse responded with a number of snarky comments regarding his use of grammar and complete lack of logic. After a while, the presentations of snarky logic became too much for Rucho. He offered, finally, a defense of his statement–one he hoped would magically erase his idiotic comparisons to Nazis and Commies and
Bears terrorists (Oh, my!)
It’s almost as if he hoped a metaphor would erase his lack of historical knowledge and idiocy. Anyone notice he spelled “Bulwer-Lytton” incorrectly?
