Democratic Congressional Staffers Get Immunized Against Hepatitis Before Travelling To... NASCAR Races

More courting of the values vote, this time by immunizing oneself against "Redneck Cooties."

Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat and committee chairman, responds to concerns by Rep. Robin Hayes of Concord, North Carolina, that committee staffers should be immunized against certain diseases before attending NASCAR races.

...

"I have been to numerous NASCAR races, and the folks who attend these events certainly do not pose any health hazard to congressional staffers or anyone else," Mr. Hayes said.

A committee staffer says that the Republican staffers have declined the shots but that two Democrat staffers were immunized before attending the race at Talladega last weekend.

The NRCC is having a bit of fun with this. Here's their press release:

Talladega Frights: Democrats Allergic to NASCAR Nation?

Leading Democrat Displays Ignorance of NASCAR Voters, Advises Staff to Get Immunized Prior to Contact

Washington– Democrats seem to have traded in their usual white flag of surrender for a caution flag as they prepared to travel to Alabama and North Carolina for two of NASCAR's biggest races of the year. While red-blooded, patriotic Americans were packing their coolers and gathering their families in preparation of attending last week's race at Talladega, a leading Democrat was advising staff to get immunized.

Maybe the House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson was afraid his fellow Democrats might come down with a case of Red State Republicanism after coming in contact with hundreds of thousands of regular Americans attending the event. No matter what his reasoning, Thompson's ignorant behavior is inexcusable and clearly exposes the fundamental disconnect between the Democrat-led Congress and the rest of America.

In a letter to Thompson, Congressman Robin Hayes (R-NC) registered his disbelief:

"I have been to numerous NASCAR races, and the folks who attend these events certainly do not pose any health hazard to congressional staffers or anyone else. "

(Letter from Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC) 10/5/07)


Trillion dollar tax hikes, removal of "God" from American flag certificates, and now advised immunizations for Congressional staff attending NASCAR events. What's next from the Democrat-led Congress?

The Democratic Party thinks you're anti-Christian, stupid, racist, and diseased.

Please consider voting for them. They can help you.
