Colorado state Rep. Lori Saine (R) reportedly brought fried chicken to a hearing on poverty as a protest after a fellow lawmaker was criticized last month for blaming the diet of African-Americans and Hispanics for racial disparities in the poverty rate.

How embarrassing for Colorado (and we have no lack of embarrassing legislators). Perhaps she should move to sea level, as she clearly is not getting enough oxygen here.

Thank you for exposing the ignorance of these revolting individuals. They are not worthy of being refered to as ladies. I hope their constituents enundate them with complaints and shame them for their disgusting behavior and call for a recall, so they can be replaced. Actually, she should resign, but clearly she is too uncouth and ignorant to do so. (n, p, t)

Perfect example of what is wrong with the Republican party and why every single one of them should be gotten rid of.
