Welcome, boys and girls, to this blog's funny paper section on Monday mornings. Last week, Michigan State Representative Lisa Brown (D-West Bloomfield) was ruled out of order (and silenced) by the Dumbo majority in the Michigan House of Representatives. Reason: during a debate on Dumbo-inspired anti-choice legislation. Brown and a colleague Representative Barb Byrum (D-Onondaga) were silenced by a ruling that their utterances of "vagina" were an affront to House decorum. The two women should have said "cunt" so that the Dumbos understood what they were saying. Is it any wonder that Dumbos and Teabaggers are a variety of Homo Stupidus? If this is a (fair & balanced) logophobia, so be it.
