The Dumbest Thing You Could Say

Seriously, there are some idiots out there, in my home country we call them 'muppets'. Over at Upworthy they have highlighted one particular fool who decided to go head to head with a Congresswoman about disability, and specifically, military disability.

An IRS contractor named Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military. Then one day, decades later, he used it to get preferred treatment in government contracts. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, felt that this might just be a touch inappropriate. It gets amazing around 4:30.

Watch and learn.

Kudos and respect to the Congresswoman too.
