"Accidental" intros?

Okay, I've heard it a couple of times today. Newscasters, when getting ready to cover yet another story on the non-filibuster, use the words "More on Senator Ted Cruz."

Is it possible that the phrase accidentally sounds like "Moron Senator Ted Cruz"?

Hmmmm........

My Monday smile

There's this movie playing in my head:

Little 5-year-old Ted Cruz enters kindergarten. On the first day he marches into the principal's office and demands more cookies or he'll burn the school down. Then he meets the principal who was at my school when I started kindergarten. . .

"Representation"

In Colorado's 4th congressional district, thousands of people found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly relying on government assistance. Their homes were destroyed or severely damaged in the flooding, everything they owned is gone. Families and seniors are now living in community shelters, their children are now wearing donated clothing as they return to school. They're going to need assistance of many kinds for a long time.

And how did their congressman help? He voted to cut $40 billion from the food stamp program.

Cory Gardner. Gee, what a swell guy.

My "representative" and food stamps

I just spoke with two staffers at Cory Gardner's DC office; he represents Colorado's 4th District, heavily impacted by the recent floods.

I pointed out that thousands of residents of CD-4 have found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly dependant on programs like food stamps. I asked, "In today's vote on the Republican bill to make massive cuts from the food stamp program will the congressman stand with his constituents or will he vote for the bill?"

Neither staffer would answer the question.
