Rep. Randy Weber for Worst Person
2015 is off to a great (terrible) start in the political race for worst person. Many contenders have passed us by while I was out of the country and unable able to blog about them but I wanted to flag one that was so egregious it deserved special recognition. CampaignSick Nation, meet Randy Weber. Texas Representative and all around illiterate a-hole who tweeted the above tweet in response to President Obama's failure to travel to France in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo tragedy. Weber later fauxpologized stating, “I now realize that the use of Hitler invokes pain and emotional trauma for those affected by the atrocities of the Holocaust and victims of anti-Semitism and hate.” Because yeah, how could you have predicted that?
Full disclosure, I was the GOTV director for Weber's opponent when the race was an open seat in 2012. Congratulations, people of Southeast Texas. Solid choice.
