We Have a Winner!

We all knew that she had it in her to do this. Former U.S. Representative Helen Chenoweth-Hage had demonstrated her cluelessness before with “endangered salmon bakes” and assertions that government “black helicopters” were harassing Idahoans over compliance with the Endangered Species Act. She rebutted the report that salmon were endangered with the observation that she could buy cans of salmon in the supermarket. Such idiocy surely could not all be directed at subjects outside her personal safety, could it? On October 2nd, Chenoweth-Hage proved to the world that she had the “right stuff” by going seatbeltless as a passenger holding a baby in her lap, and in a single-car crash earned the Darwin Award that we all suspected must be awaiting her. The baby, though thrown from the vehicle, survived with minor injuries.
