Betty McCollum Explains, In a Manner of Speaking

Mitch Berg transcribes the deep thoughts of my congressional representative:

Now what do we do in the meantime? Well, stimulus, funding to keep Americans working and keep the economy moving forward and create confidence is what the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was about, that’s what I voted for, and we’re going to see some big things happening for instance in Saint Paul for example with Central Corridor being the largest work project in the state of Minnesota, with state and local and government funding, investing in our community um so I’m very pleased that people’re going to see more of those projects moving forward there’s a lot of the traffic inconvenience we’re all suffering, our investments make putting Minnesotans to work through the recovery act and um I’m not gonna be apologetic for making sure that americans have a chance get up and go to work in the morning people in Minnesota do, there’s still too many people without jobs.

We may have to put that to music.

Maybe let's change Betty's nickname. I've been calling her Godless Betty McCollum for years. Ever since she coudl not say "under God" when leading the House in the Pledge of Allegiance. How does Betty "Deep Thoughts" McCollum sound?

How about Betty "Deep As a Dog Dish" McCollum?

I like it, Rick!

I dunno, Crankbait -- a dog dish holds water, which is more than once can say about most of Betty's statements.
