First I think you should watch this video if you haven't seen it already. It features Miss Teen South Carolina responding to a question on geographic literacy.
In it she says this:
“I personally believe… that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because Osama… people out there in our nation don't have that… and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and the Iraq… everywhere like such as… and I believe that they should—our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S.—or should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future... for our children.”
You've got to admit that that answer is rather nuts.
Well a few weeks ago at a similar pageant, a Republican "unity" event, our very own Phil Bryant had this to say on how he would be different than his Democratic opponent Jamie Franks:
"I would imagine tort reform is something that Jamie is not as strongly in favor of… I know that he did put his name on a tort reform bill,” Bryant said. “We're going to talk about illegal immigration. I'm not sure what his position is on it.”'
I'll give new blog Flip Flopping Phil Bryant the last word:
In the end, the statements from Miss Teen SC and Dewey Phil are the best example I’ve seen in a while of why education must be fully funded every single year.
Miss Teen South Carolina said it best Friday night: “so we will be able to build up our future... for our children…”
You'll see that we have added Flip Flopping Phil Bryant to our blogroll.
