Mrs. Jim Crow, continuing her sermon yesterday, said, "Discrimination [is] part of our fallen nature. We're all sinful humans."
Mrs. Jim Crow, formally known as Oklahoma GOPer Rep. Sally Kern, first came to infamy as the woman with the truth, the crusading culture warrior for her god, who proclaimed that gay men are worse than terrorists, who like cancer, need to be removed.
The former remarks were recorded and reported at semi-public lunches in March and August of 2008.

Rep. Sally Kernis now going after women and African-Americans.
I can't make this stuff up. Here are some of her best lines:
---"Minorities earn less than white people and women earn less than men because they don't work as hard and have less initiative.'
---"I taught school for 20 years and I saw a lot of people of color who didn't want to work as hard," she said, reading from notes. "They wanted it given to them."
---"Women do not want to work as hard as men."
Move the slider to 7:44:50 to hear her preach the good news according to the gospel of mean spirited GOPers. These are people who never met an idea they couldn't wait to suck the life from, who can't wait to trash the aspirations of anyone who thinks or lives differently, who can't wait to infuse the body politic with venomous acid, who pollute the clear words of a leader like Dr. M.L. King with the scum scraped off the fangs of their foam-covered mouths. In short, they exult in torturing people who have done them no harm.
Mrs. Jim Crow says these things after careful coaching by her keepers, who tend this oracle of stupidity like a flame to raise money and to keep her name in the media. In her public remarks on the floor of the House she found nothing wrong with women earning less than men. She quoted the figure that women work for 77 cents for every dollar men are paid. If she's willing to use this ratio why doesn't she give back to the taxpayer this difference from her Representative House salary? She should put her money where her mouth is.
