You gotta love those zany teabaggers. Now the people who went to
D.C. last weekend to protest government-run programs - using
government-built roads, government-funded police protection etc etc -
are complaining
the government-run subway system didn't meet their needs, and Texas
Rep. Kevin Brady has sent an angry letter to the subway czar. The
kicker: Earlier this year, Brady voted against stimulus funds to
improve the Metro. Cognitive dissonance, thy name is wingnut.

"I will demand answers from Metro," wrote Brady to whatever socialist tyrant runs the D.C. subways.
