At first I thought it was an Onion parody: Texas Legislator Wants Asians to Americanize Names. But no, it’s true. At a hearing for pending legislation on voter identification, Rep. Betty Brown suggested to a witness that Asians should adopt names that are “easier for Americans to deal with.”
Brown has since apologized to Asians, but the jury has decided. Betty Brown, you are today’s winner of today’s Michele Bachmann Clueless Bitch Award.
Congratulations< betty. Enjoy it while it lasts. I’m sure Michele will do some stupid tea-bagging thing soon the wrest it away from you.
