Here is some hilarious news from the Great State of Missouri, courtesy of Talking Points Memo. It's really just too great for additional commentary up top, so let TPM take it away!
State Rep. Timothy W. Jones (R-Eureka) of the Missouri House of Representatives was unanimously elected by the new Republican caucus to be the next Majority Floor Leader.
Why is that newsworthy? Because he was represented by "Birther Queen" Orly Taitz in a federal case alleging that President Barack Obama was secretly an Indonesian named Barry Soetoro and ineligible to be President of the United States.
Surely this can only mean great things for the people of Missouri! Oh, how their public schools are going to benefit from this particular foray into genius leadership!
Hopefully, the citizens of St. Louis are ready for their children to take Fart Noises 101 and Nodding in Unison 201 every day for the rest of their miserable little lives.
