SHAMEFUL: As the US hurtles towards a government shutdown, one Republican lawmaker, Rep. John Culberson (R-TX), sunk to an even lower level by comparing their continuing resolution to the heroic efforts of the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93, who overpowered terrorists who had gained control of the plane.
I have to ask, what’s in the water that the politicians from Texas are drinking? They have said and done some really crazy things. Rep. Culberson should be ashamed to even make such a comparison.
