What? Did we elect an idiot to be our Congressman? Aside from wasting our tax dollars flying to Iowa to cheerlead for Chrissy Dodd's silly ego-inflating primary flop last week, it seems the Congresman finds learning to tell time to be a challenge!

"The fourth-graders were learning to tell time, with almost full accuracy, he said. "Watching them go up to the Smart Board, they were a lot more fearless than I would have been," Courtney said."

....And in what school district do 4th graders not know how to tell time? They ought call these things "Idiot Boards" because that is who they are being used to educate....remedial 4th graders and a brain dead Congressman!!!

First of all a "Havard Man" couldn't be as stupid as you. Secondly New York isn't in Courtney's district.

Hey Mac, so are you trying to imply only those that live in Courtney's district should be able to level criticism at the buffoon? OK, why don't we first start by removing all the campaign donations the Congressman accepts from donors, PACs and other liberal hacks from outside his district. If we did that he'd barely have two nickels to rub together with such prosperous communities as Stafford Springs and Occum to poach from! If he takes the dough from outside the district he can sure take the crap that comes with it!

...and while Courtney is at it, may be he can enroll you in a class with those "sharp as a tack" fourth graders to learn Civics 101, as well as time, from the Idiot Board.

It should be noted that the Congressman's children (2) do not and have not attended puplic schools. Why is that ?

There's a very good reason Mr. Courtney sends his kids to private school. It's because he is an elite liberal pantload who knows very well the disaster that is public education.
