The folks at the Western Ag Reporter understand that what goes on inside the mind of TEA Party Republican Rep. Krayton Kerns is important. So important, in fact, that his words merited front page real estate in the last edition of the paper. This way, we can all get a peek at how a mind of this caliber thinks. (Hint, it barely does.)
More than anything, Krayton Kerns is angry.
He’s angry that Sandra Fluke dared to say that birth control was $1000 per year, a great expense for many.
Krayton’s idea of illustrating how angry we should be about Fluke’s statement is to wax nostalgic about his own life experiences. He tells us of a dog he knew in vet school that earned that amount each month in stud fees.
Krayton Kerns is angry because he believes that birth control is the “death nail in the coffin of our Republic.” And, he’s angry because he believes that it was Mitt Romney who made birth control the focus of the 2012 elections. Now, because of this, Krayton Kerns says the conservatives are “screwed.”
