For those of you who haven’t yet heard
the quote, South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer, recently compared poor children
receiving free lunches to "stray animals" who "breed" because of all that good
food. Then in backtracking his quote, he
it even worse by trying to explain his point. By the way, as a child of
divorced parents he also received
some of those free lunches.
But if you want to hear the full original
quote in all its horrible glory (it actually sounds worse in context) Rachel
Maddow has the goods.
