Sometimes I wonder why they bother...

News Corpse catches a Breitbart Brat wasting their breath on meaningless questions put to Sen. Al Franken, providing the evidence of the stupidity of their own questions in the same video, yet continuing on only to be answered quite correctly by Sen. Franken:

In this episode of Mattera’s Morons, Jason stalks Sen. Franken to ask
about an alleged provision in the health care bill that allocates $7 billion for jungle gyms. The only problem for Mattera is that nothing of the sort is in the bill. Franken is acutely aware of this and engages Mattera in this exchange:

Franken: You came up to me and said “You know the part of the bill where they give $7 billion dollars to fund the jungle gyms?” And I said “Show me that.” It doesn’t say that in the bill.

Mattera:
Oh, it says infrastructure for healthy living in playgrounds for schools. What is that an army of monkey bars?

Sorry Jason. The bill doesn’t say anything about playgrounds or jungle gyms or monkey bars. And when you approach someone who is much more knowledgeable than yourself about legislation, you ought not try to lie about what’s in the bill. What the bill says is that funds in this section can be used for…

(i) creating healthier school environments, including increasing healthy food options, physical activity opportunities, promotion of healthy lifestyle, emotional wellness, and prevention curricula, and activities to prevent chronic diseases;

(ii) creating the infrastructure to support active living and access to nutritious foods in a safe environment;


So now we see that Breitbart and his ward are just as opposed to safe schools and nutritious foods as they are to preventing child abuse. But I have to admire his tenacity. After making an ass of himself over the non-existent jungle gyms, Mattera plowed ahead with a complaint about language in the bill that provides new mothers with reasonable breaks for breast feeding. I thought Republicans were supposed to be the
“family
values” party.

News Corpse has the video up if you want to actually watch the Gonzo flatulation expelled by Matteras. Can it get anymore clear that Breitbart is running a kindercare version of FOX Republican News agitprop?
