Well, since I grew up in Memphis, I’m well aware that the Fords are all quite inconvenient. But this is too good. I finally got a chance to enjoy the Ophelia Ford video from earlier in the week. This is our State Government, folks. Your tax dollars at work yet again.
Just in case you missed the story, you need to get your learn on. Apparently you need to get better knowledged about it.
With her voice rising, Ford at one point called the officials’ remarks “absolutely dumb” and said they “make no sense.” She repeatedly told them, “What you’re talkin’ about ain’t hittin’ on nothin’ with me.”
Ford, 56, is back in Nashville after missing much of the 2007 legislative session, which she attributed to health problems, including anemia. She did not attend a meeting Tuesday of the Senate General Welfare Committee, on which she sits, and aides said she had returned to her hotel room after feeling ill. She could not be reached for comment.
Apparently she went to the hospital later on after fallin’ out in the hotel lounge. I’d say she got a little too full.
It’s times like this that (1) I miss livin’ in Memphis and (2) I’m grateful for YouTube.
