Steve Benen gives us a peekinto the tortured existence of Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.), the man who wrote legislation demanding proofof American citizenship from presidential candidates and was promptly mocked as a fool.
“I expected there would be some civil debate about it, but it wasn’t civil,” Posey said. “Just a bunch of name-calling and personal denigration. … There is no reason to say that I’m the illegitimate grandson of an alligator.”
Perhaps it’s unfair for Stephen Colbert to suggestthat Posey’s grandmother “fell in love” with an alligator and “the swamp rang with her screams of ecstasy.” That’s a wild accusation based on hearsay and contradicted by the facts that we know. So by Posey’s own standards about Presidential Obama, he needs to introduce an Alligator-Human Rights Bill or stop whining.
