Another dumb-as-dirt garden variety Republican asshole.....
A controversial Tennessee Republican's joke about a pressure cooker angered critics who felt the politician was making light of the Boston Marathon bombing.
State Sen. Stacey Campfield posted a picture of an "Assault Pressure Cooker" to his personal blog, Camp4U, on Monday. The pressure cooker had the caption "Here comes Feinstein again," a mocking reference to Sen. Diane Feinsteinís (D-CA) recently defeated proposal to ban military-style assault weapons. According to Raw Story, Feinsteinís bill was criticized by gun proponents for using "cosmetic features to decide which rifles will be outlawed."
Comments on the post were decidedly negative, with several asking Campfield why he was making such a joke just days after at least one pressure cooker bomb was allegedly used to wreak havoc in Boston.
"What kind of insensitive imbecile thinks it's okay to post a picture like this," wrote commenter Accumulated Apperception. "Do you think it's a joke? Three people dead, one an eight year old child and you think it's something to laugh about (all sic)?" .....................(more)

3. Depends how recently you've spread manure
and how deeply you dug it in.
ETA: Campfield is the shit for brains bigot who wanted to tie welfare benefits to the grades kids got in school and was shamed into withdrawing the legislation by a kid who refused to be patronized and followed him around, asking him questions he had no ability to answer.
That piece of shit. Yeah, him. He needs to be sent back to probating wills in Podunk.
