Did I mention that Brandon Vick is not the sharpest knife in the drawer?

I've made no secret of my disdain for one of my two state representatives, Brandon "Lumpy" Vick.

"Lumpy" is a nickname Vick earned as he was in the middle of his first legislative session "representing" us in the 18th District... as it became clear he wasn't going to do anything he didn't have to do including the heavy lifting involved in the introduction of even a single piece of legislation.

During the course of his campaign to be re-elected, Vick essentially lied outright by making the specious claim that he was actually on 6 committees, a meme that scum down at the democratian repeated by rote, as if they didn't know better.

That Vick was returned for two more years of inaction and confusing motion with action is far more a testament to the even lower quality of his opponent, fringe-leftist nutter Mussolini Mikey Briggs than it is to anything Vick has achieved... or, in the alternative, failed to achieve.

He made that bizarre claim to counter the laziness reputation emanating from Olympia based on his actions... actually, his lack of actions... during that first year.  And his frequently repeated and false claim that HE was the guy sent in for "tough" negotiations, when, in fact, he is a backbencher wall-flower like Jaime Herrera, and if he got "sent" for anything, it was coffee for the adults.

And, of course, we'd like to believe that our legislators have a clue.  At the national level, it's clear that Herrera doesn't have one, neither of our Senators have one, and God Knows that clueless moron in the White House doesn't have one.

And now, once again, we get Brandon Vick who felt compelled to offer the following comment on the scum running rampant in and around Ferguson, MO.


"I thought it made me think."

If only.

I would like to know when, in Vick's lifetime, "massive riots" approaching anything like this have ever taken place?

Yes, I am well aware of the WTO protests in Seattle in 1999.

But those were a parking lot fender dent compared to Ferguson's 70 car pile up.

There are times, I believe, when those in a position of authority (No matter how unfortunate that may be...)  should speak out on the events surrounding us and/or impacting us.  But built in TO that is the presumption that they have at least an inkling on the subjects they're going to babble about.

I have, and will continue to, hammer Jaime Herrera for remaining silent on many of the issues confronting us.  But when she (Or, actually, her keepers) send out a press release, they at least have a vague notion of the issues at hand.

Brandon Vick, with this remark that he wrote, appears so far in over his head that he can't see straight.

"... but I thought it made me think."
