Cross-eyed look at reality

Virginia Foxx, who's sentience at this moment bears a lot of similarity to Red Foxx, has the latest right-wing talking points down pat.  

In criticizing the private college presidents, Representative Virginia Foxx, the North Carolina Republican who leads the subcommittee on higher education [ED -- WHAT?!], adapted the famous statement from the German theologian Martin Niemöller on Germans who ignored Nazi persecution. ("First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out because I was not a communist.") 

" 'They came for the for-profits, and I didn't speak up...' " Foxx said. "Nobody really spoke up like they should have."

Yes, regulating for profit colleges equals Holocaust case (and mind) closed.

And yes, Virginia, she takes a lot of money from the for-profit education lobby

I live in North Carolina. Foxx is no doubt the stupidest person this state has ever sent to Congress. I suspect we're paying good money for someone to water her twice a week.
