Douchebag of the Week: Rep. Lynn Jenkins

A freshman Republican congresswoman apologized Thursday for telling a gathering in her district that the GOP was still searching for a "great white hope" to stop President Barack Obama's political agenda.
You know what? I'm going to give Kansas Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R- Whiteyville) the benefit of the doubt. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I don't believe Jenkins seriously meant that phrase in any type of racial connotation. But she's still a douchebag for being stupid enough not to understand its meaning or know its origin. Sort of like "tar baby."

Talk about making a splash in your first year as an elected official in Congress!

OTOH, maybe she's just a victim of Bible-based education.

I'm not giving her the benefit of a doubt.What other connotation is there when the"great white hope"speaks for itself?The whole health care reform argument has been used as a shield by racist across the country as an excuse to bring guns to rallies ,calling Obama Hitler,doubting his citizenship etc.Occasionally we get a politician like this moron who expresses what she really feels too her whitelandia district.

Oh, these people are oh, so stupid. Our elected representatives. Gives you a warm feeling inside, doesn't it, to know we are represented by people like this?
