Being an Idiot is Not Incompatible with Being a State Senator

In Florida, Miami Democratic Sen. Larcenia Bullard, Vice-Chair of the Agricultural Committee and a former teacher took objection to the term ‘animal husbandry’ in a discussion of a bill outlawing behavior unbecoming to discuss on a family blog (also discussed in the article, so if your young children read, you probably don’t want them clicking through the link. Specifically, conventional dog-judging contests and animal-husbandry practices were exempted from this bill, and this confused the Senator:

‘People are taking these animals as their husbands? What’s husbandry?” she asked. Some senators stifled their laughter as Sen. Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican, explained that husbandry is raising and caring for animals. Bullard didn’t get it.

”So that maybe was the reason the lady was so upset about that monkey?” Bullard asked, referring to a Connecticut case where a woman’s suburban chimpanzee went mad and was shot.

Oh, my. She’s also on several education related committees– making rules and regulations for the peons who actually do know what animal husbandry is.
