Watch out Barbara Boxer–be frightened Sheila Jackson Lee and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Congressman Hank Johnson your crown may tip over like Guam, there is a brand new idiot in town Congresswoman Diana DeGette.

The Colorado Rep. was at a public meeting sponsored by the Denver Post to discuss gun control. She was there because as she bragged

I’m the Prime House Co-Sponsor on the ban on the high capacity magazines and I believe that as this bill works through it has an excellent chance of passing.

When she was asked if a ban on high capacity magazines would be effective Rep DeGette proved why she will never be a neurosurgeon:

“To your last question: ‘What’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips?’ I will tell you, these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. So if you ban, if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will be shot and there won’t be any more available.”

The poor woman is sponsoring the bill and has no freaking idea what a magazine is? No really this public official is a special kind of idiot. It’s hard to believe she is allowed out of the house without a helmet strapped to the top of her head.

Watch the video below of Rep DeGette’s intelligent answer but first swallow anything in your mouth (unless you enjoy the “Danny Thomas spit take”). Especially fun is the reaction of the crowd–half of them are laughing and the other half seem to be murmuring “did I really hear what I just heard?”
