Anerican Idiots of the day - A tie

After much debate the Irritable Liberal editorial board could not choose between 2 candidates.

Idiot # 1 - Unnamed Woman in Georgia

The Georgia Senate has decided to ban microchip implants in humans. This may be related to allegations that the Health Care Reform bill mandated microchip implants into humans to facilitate 'death panel' decisions. A State Senate committee was holding hearings on the matter. An unnamed woman was gave evidence that she had already had a microchip implanted. Instead of stopping her there and then the committee listened.
"Microchips are like little beepers," the woman told the committee. "Just imagine, if you will, having a beeper in your rectum or genital area, the most sensitive area of your body. And your beeper numbers displayed on billboards throughout the city. All done without your permission."

"Ma'am, did you say you have a microchip?" state Rep. Tom Weldon (R) asked the woman.

"Yes, I do. This microchip was put in my vaginal-rectum area," she replied.

No one laughed. State Rep. Wendell Willard (R), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, asked her who had implanted the chip.

"The Department of Defense," she said.

Willard thanked the woman for her input, and the committee later approved the bill.

Idiot # 2 - Sue Lowden - GOP Senate Candidate for Nevada

The other day she floated an idea of using barter as a solution to paying medical bills. Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo, a leading liberal blog/news outlet joked about it, writing, "I bid three chickens for that MRI."

Lowden is either channeling Josh Marshall or is dead serious about her idea.

Yesterday she told a local news program: "I'm telling you that this works. You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor."

She didn't specify whether the chicken should be live, frozen or cooked.

The scary thing is that she is way ahead in the polls to win the GOP primary and appears as though she will also beat Harry Reid to become the next Senator from Nevada.
