Hypocrisy of the Stinkiest Kind

One expects a fair amount of hypocrisy when dealing with politicians. But, Congressman Trey Radel takes the cake. Rep. Radel yesterday pled guilty to a charge of possessing cocaine. Earlier this year, Rep. Radel supported legislation that required all recipients of food stamps to go through a drug test. Maybe he was high at the time he voted. Let's hope the voters in Florida are stone sober when they toss him out of office next year.
