Senator Stacey Campfield (R-TN) is being called out for making what he claims was a “joke” about pressure cookers being used as weapons on his blog yesterday. When confronted, Campfield responded in his usual smug and belligerent manner writing,
I Just got a call from the media saying they had gotten a few calls (about a blog post I did) saying it was inappropriate after the Boston bombing.
If my post was inappropriate talking about “crock pot control” then where is the outrage from the left when they push for gun control after the Sandy Hook shooting? Im sorry if I exposed your double standard….
Well, not really.
Campfield is well known for his oh-so-brilliant musings on things like the origin of AIDS (“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community – it was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall…”) and bullying (“That bullying thing is the biggest lark out there.”). The Tennessee Senator also made news recently when he dropped a bill tying TANF (formerly known as welfare) benefits to children’s grades after being followed around and shamed by an awesome 8-year-old little girl.
We can see why Mr. Campfield claims bullying is a “lark” since he seems to have it down to an art form himself.
