This week in Loonieland
Idaho State Representative, Vito Barbieri (R), is no fool when to comes to anatomy. He was arguing with a doctor the other day who was testifying against a proposed bill that would ban physicians from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine, when he had a brilliant idea: if you can send a camera probe up someone’s ass to examine the colon, well then why not just send the same thing down a woman’s throat to really get to know her vagina? Sounds reasonable, no? The doctor, probably struggling to keep a straight face, noted that a woman’s stomach and vagina are two separate body parts and are not connected. (Kind of like trying to look at your liver through your ear.) This being Idaho and all, the bill passed anyway.
But wait, there’s more…
Nevada republican (what did you expect?), Assemblywoman, Michele Fiore http://votefiore.com, has a cure for cancer! And with a common household ingredient, yet. Fiore proposed a bill this week that would let people use drugs without the approval of the FDA. To support this wacko idea she said,
“If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing with, say, salt water, sodium cardonate [sic] through that line and flushing out the fungus. These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost.”
A fungus?? You mean like ringworm? And to think of all that money people spend on chemo when a little Arm & Hammer will kick that cancer to the curb…and fix your heartburn, too. BTW, Michele, it’s sodium bicarbonate.
Again, this proves that being batshit crazy is nolo problemo when it comes to being elected to public office.
