In what just might be the funniest, serious news story of the week, House votes to remove word ‘lunatic’ from federal law, Michael Dorstewitz writes the following:
On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives followed a previous Senate vote in removing the word “lunatic” from federal law. The vote was 398 to one.
Texas Republican Louie Gohmert cast the sole “nay” vote.
“Not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy,” Gohmert said in an e-mailed statement. “We should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.”
We were curious what should replace the word lunatic now that they have voted it out? What do you think is more appropriate?
