Why does Virginia Foxx hate the first amendment?

Poor Ginny Foxx. Can you believe mean old reporters think they have the right to ask her questions about her lord and master, Rush Limbaugh? Here's the story.

The House had called a vote and I saw Foxx making her way to the Capitol with another Representative. I figured that this would be a good opportunity to interview two Representatives at the same time, so I made my way over and asked if they had any comment on Rush Limbaugh's trouble purchasing a football team.

Suddenly Virginia Foxx bolted. That little ol' lady sprinted ahead and across the street. (Here's the video of the exchange. At the end you hear "Excuse me". That was the Police. They don't like having their security operations filmed, so I turned the camera off as soon as they began the detention process.) I followed her with my camera and commented on her vitality with tongue planted firmly in cheek. To me, it was pretty funny that she was so obviously afraid of the video camera.

Or at least I thought it was funny. The next thing I knew, I was being summoned by a not-so-amused Capitol Policeman. For the next 15-20 minutes I was detained while they ran my ID and did a background check. Virginia Foxx had complained to them that I was "bothering" her.

Queen Foxx

Maybe she thinks she's a queen instead of member of the People's House ... too royal to be approached by the sniveling masses.

Not Legitimate News Organization

What's good for the goose is good for the gander, James. I believe no less than the WH is trying to neuter Fox News (good luck) and here we're talking some hack from the Daily Kos...gimme a break!

Actually I don't know why Foxx didn' just say what many think..."While I believe Mr. Limbaugh's money is as green as others, the Federal Govt has no business meddling in this issue unless the NFL has done something illegal".

Sniveling masses? You guys need to have a better self image of yourselves.

Oh my God !!

I cannot tell you how hard I laughed at watching that video. Thanks, James. PLEASE, someone run against this fugly little old lady and put us out of our misery !!

I would like to say that I cannot imagine anyone in their right mind and with any sense at all not knowing that Limbaugh was denied being able to be involved in purchasing an NFL team simply because of the controversy he would bring to not only the team but the NFL itself. It was all about money, ad dollars. If I was making that decision, I would have made the exact same one.

Stalking The Foxx? By The Saint Louis Rams Limbaugh Cheerleaders

No doubt she thinks the dude is stalking her for Sex, She call out the Capital Cops twice on him........lol Or she thought she was running late for Rush Limbaugh Saint Louis Rams Cheerleaders tryouts.

Good one, Town Hall

I doubled over when I read that Town Hall. I had these visions of fugly little old white ladies along with Virginie Foxx, wrinkled up looking like our "favorite daughter" (as it were) in congress hurrying up to get to see Rush Limbaugh standing next to some 6ft. 9in. black receiver for the Rams saying: "I OWN this guy".

Then, I saw Ms. Foxx standing in front of a couple of lines of scantily clad cheerleaders holding a funnelphone hollering out: "Alright girls, on my cue, holler out 'Mush Rush'....'Mush Rush'.

I'm sorry Lord...I didn't mean to say those things...

Has anyone targetted her seat yet?

Does anyone know if there is opposition targeting her for 2010? We need to get her out of there ASAP.

Syd

ASAP would not be soon enough

I don't see anything happening. A majority of people in the district seems completely happy having an ignorant bigot representing them.
