David Vitter needs to crawl back under that rock he came from.

Sam is stretched out and unresponsive in the family room with a Gary Cooper movie on TV, thereby providing a swell opportunity to horse around with the Howdygram for a little while. I certainly hope you’re having a fine Saturday, people.

It’s been a while since our last Putz of the Week award but I’m hoping tonight’s honoree will make up for lost time. Tonight the Howdygram is pleased to introduce you to Senator David Vitter of Louisiana, another Republican nutcase whose main political focus is to make sure the poor underclass in America remains hungry, sick and desperate.
Vitter, who managed to survive a scandal in 2011 that linked him to the infamous “D.C. Madam” call girl ring, has proposed an amendment to the Farm Bill that would make ex-convicts ineligible for food stamps for the rest of their lives. The amendment bans convicted murderers, rapists, and pedophiles from ever receiving the ability to buy food for themselves even after they’re released from prison, making life virtually impossible for people who have legally paid their debt to society.

While I have no soft spot for murderers, rapists and pedophiles, I think denying any human being the most basic necessity of life is OUTRAGEOUS. We feed them when they’re in prison ... what the hell do we expect ex-cons to do after they’re released? Anybody ever heard of RECIDIVISM? David Vitter needs to crawl back under that rock he came from.

As long as I’m on a roll I’d also like to share my thoughts on the cowardly, right-wing governors of Texas, Florida, Kansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia, all of whom refuse to expand Medicaid to the poorest residents in their states even though the federal government is willing to pick up 90% of the tab under Obama’s Affordable Care Act. How people so spiteful and heartless can pretend to be “public servants” is beyond my comprehension. They serve nobody but THEMSELVES. I’d really, really like to kick the crap out of somebody.

One final thought. Don’t forget to watch Behind the Candelabra tomorrow night! There’s still time to call your cable company to sign up for HBO if you don’t already have it. Thank you.
