Remember How the Pilgrims Rejected Socialism? Rep. Todd Akin Sure Does!

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 7:38 AM

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Don't know anything about this holiday? Dont' worry!

Congressman Todd Akin (R-St.Louis County) has been studying the origins of Thanksgiving and it's "unbiblical" cousin, socialism, and can explain it all -- as he did last week in Washington D.C.

Note: Most YouTube videos longer than three minutes aren't worth watching. This one is an exception. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!



So, what do you think? Does Akin have "something wrong with his brain" like that former governor of Plymouth Colony, John Carver?

Hat tip to Fired Up! Missouri for the video.
