Here is your daily dose of “Republican congresspeople say the darndest things”
U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) is taking aim at wasteful homeland security spending and has zeroed in on a zombie apocalypse demonstration as one prime example.
In a 54-page report on homeland security spending released Wednesday, Coburn offered numerous cases of what he described as unnecessary spending at the Department of Homeland Security’s Urban Area Security Initiative.
The 54-page report singled out a zombie training exercise using Hollywood-worthy special effects that took place during a recent five-day counterterrorism summit on an island outside San Diego.
First responders attended the summit with the support of government grant money.
This was a counterterrorism program. Get it? Oops, I guess he doesn’t because it looks like a slam dunk to bust on “zombies” because they are just so silly. Like those truthers and conspiracies and other stuff paranoid and ultra religious Congress people on the right love.
This is not quite as bad as Sarah Palin’s diss of fruit fly research. She looked like a COMPLETE idiot on that one. If you don’t know what you are talking about. Please don’t stand on a podium and act like you do.
