Pip pip, cheerio! Here's more wholesome nutty goodness from Republican Senate candidate Annette Bosworth, responding to Todd Epp's question about health care:

We have a federal responsibility to take care of those who can't take care of themselves. We do not have a federal responsibility to take care of the whole bloody nation [Annette Bosworth, interview with Todd Epp, Northern Plains News, 2013.10.17].

Sigh.

  1. Doctors usually recognize a responsibility to take care of everybody.
  2. Senators swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, which is all about the common defense, the general welfare, and securing the Blessings of Liberty for, yes, the whole darn nation.
  3. We ordained and established that Constitution after throwing tea off a boat and fighting a Revolution to free ourselves from having to bow to the British. Talking like the British makes any American but especially a Senate candidate sound silly. It also leaves the audience wondering what word you really wanted to say.
