Keep saying stupid things

Link to examiner article: Will the real John Yarmuth please stand up?

Everyone is guilty of saying something stupid from time to time. I mean, if I had a dollar for every time I said something stupid, I’d be as rich as John Yarmuth--well, maybe not quite as rich.

But, as a patriot, I don't make comments about the limits of government lightly. The Constitution is sacred, and freedom warrants the utmost respect.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the philosophy of our representatives. First, when asked about the limits of the commerce clause by one of his California constituents, Congressman Pete Stark said that the federal government “can do almost anything in this country".

What a stupid thing to say. This is a statement that should get you jailed. Yet, somehow, Congressman Yarmuth missed this embarrassment.

When responding to a similar question on the limits of the commerce clause, Yarmuth said, “It really doesn’t prohibit the government from doing virtually anything – the federal government. So I don’t know the answer to your question, because I am not sure there is anything under current interpretation of the commerce clause that the government couldn’t do.”

John Yarmuth, keep saying stupid things.

Will the real John Yarmuth please stand up?
