Take a look at this photo of Cheri Bustos (D-NARAL) looking all moony-eyed at President LightWorker like some love struck teenybopper groupie. Embarrassing or hilarious? I can’t decide—maybe both!
And as if this photo wasn’t mortifying enough for Bustos, she didn’t do herself any favors by crowing on her Facebook:
“I just signed discharge petition to force Speaker Boehner to bring up a bill for a simple up or down vote to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.”
I guess she didn’t get the memo like the rest of us did that Harry Reid declined to bring the minimum wage bill to a vote in the Senate because it lacked even enough Democrat votes. Seems like they were spooked by the recent CBO report that a $10.10 minimum raise would kill half a million jobs—which Democrats do very well and are usually happy to oblige, except for this being an election year, and all that.
Somebody buy Bustos a subscription to a news service so she can keep informed on the happenings on The Hill!
