He’s a Freshman Tea Party Respresentative from Louisiana. He’s making such a big deal about skipping “class.” I think he just wants to make a name for himself. Until you read the article, did you know who he was? Me neither.
He even prepared a formal statement saying why he didn’t want go. Drilling, future generations saddled with debt, grandstanding, no spending cuts = no higher debt ceiling, blah, blah, blah.
Message to Landry: Aren’t Representatives supposed to represent? Well, you probably would have blended in with the furniture, anyway. By publicly declining the invitation, you actually exist now. Just for a bit, though. To get lasting fame/infamy, you need a sex scandal. Preferably a gay one. For now, enjoy!
