From my cold, dead hands

That’s where you’ll have to pry my Thin Mints from if you want them. It’s clearly a nut-bar Freshman State Representative trying to make a splash and get his name in the paper, but that doesn’t mean we can’t laugh at the ridiculousness of it all:

An Indiana legislator is under fire from his fellow Republicans for describing the Girl Scouts of America a “radicalized organization” and urging the state House not to sign a resolution recognizing the organization’s 100th anniversary.

In a letter written to fellow lawmakers, Rep. Bob Morris (R) writes that the Girl Scouts are “quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood,” and that its agenda “includes sexualizing young girls” and promoting “homosexual lifestyles.”

I am fully opposed to anyone who could get in the way of the world’s finest cookie distribution supply chain. In all seriousness, the money for those cookies goes towards a fine organization that teaches girl’s self esteem, leadership and civics . I like the GOP Indiana House Speaker’s response:

House Speaker Brian Bosma (R) started Tuesday’s session by handing out Thin Mints – the scouting organization’s signature cookie brand – to his fellow lawmakers and later stating from the podium he had “purchased 278 cases of Girl Scout cookies in the last 48 hours.”

Frankly, most of our political institutions could benefit from a Thin Mint giveaway to start every session.
