From the Chronicle of Higher Education:
Rep. Virginia Foxx to Head House Higher-Education Panel
January 4, 2011, 2:49 pm
House Republicans have appointed Rep. Virginia Foxx as chair of the subcommittee on higher education. Representative Foxx, a conservative from North Carolina, previously taught or served as an administrator at Appalachian State University, Caldwell Community College, and Mayland Community College.
Good Lord !!!
Representative Foxx has distinguished herself in recent years as one of the most inane, un- or mis-deducated (she does have a doctorate), ignorant, dumb-cluck members of the Congress — and that’s saying something!
One of many instances is featured here, (along with a link to Rachel Maddow / Kent Jones’ “get to know Virginia Foxx” video).
