The Onion takes on Betty Brown

I suppose this was inevitable, given how low the fruit was hanging. But now that we've had all this fun at Rep. Betty Brown's expense, I've got to agree with David Mauro in that this has largely served to reinforce negative stereotypes of Texas and Texans around the world. So for being this session's Al Edwards, may I just say to Betty Brown: "Thanks a hell of a lot".

On the page you linked to with the bit from the Onion, did you click through to watch the interview with Ramey Ko on KXAN? I hadn't even thought about the fact that Brown was saying "You and your citizens," vs. "we Americans". That's actually a scary mindset.

HIs interview is great.
