Once again - why does this week's news all sound like it comes from The Onion? - this is real. The above is the new campaign bumper sticker for one Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas). He recently threatened to impeach Obama for daring to consider gun control measures, invited gun owners feeling "unwanted" and “persecuted” to move to Texas, and argues that "the right to life is the great civil rights struggle of our age - no little boy or little girl should be subjected to violence because the government has declared them less than human,” which he says is Just Like slavery. We can't think of much in the way of response, except that Costa Rica is looking better and better.
