NASCAR fever

"I have never heard of immunizations for domestic travel, and as the Representative for Concord, NC, I feel compelled to ask why the heck the committee feels that immunizations are needed to travel to my hometown?" - Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC)

Come on, Robin, don't be coy with us. You know exactly why the chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security advised your staff members to get Hepatitis, Diphtheria, and Tetanus shots before traveling to your home town, don't you? No, it's not because Concord, N.C. is known as 'The City of Rusty Nails', although I'm sure that didn't hurt when coupled with the festering waters of Swamp Kinahoochie.

It's the upcoming NASCAR race, a dirty dirty NASCAR race. And after all, the House Committee is chaired by a Democrat. And the Democrats hate America. Ergo, the Democrats hate NASCAR, and they hate your staff for wanting to attend the festive occasion so they want to terrorize them with needles. Socialized medical needles.

Listen, Brave Sir Robin, I know that Rush is off for a couple of days, but you really do need to be able to connect a few of the dots on your own.
