Politician Has Loose Screw

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Minnesota lawmaker who was chair-bound when a screw came loose in his prosthetic leg joked the incident was symbolic of the end of the 2011 session.

State Rep. John Kriesel, R-Cottage Grove, said the screw came loose in the final moments of the 2011 legislative session and he was the last legislator seated due to waiting for the House handyman to repair the knee of his prosthetic leg with Allen wrenches, zip-ties and duct tape, the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer-Press reported Tuesday."



At least this dude had a loose screw in his prosthetic leg and not in his head like most politicians. Rep. Kriessel lost his legs to an IED while serving in Iraq.

Kriessel led the push to oppose a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage on the 2012 ballot. The House voted to approve the measure.

With a screwdriver you can fix a screw loose in a prosthetic leg. I wish you could use the same remedy to fix the Neanderthals who have a loose screw in their brains and think that there`s something wrong with same-sex marriage.
