Caring Congress takes time out to cut word 'lunatic' from federal law12/6/2012
Never mind the fiscal cliff — Congress has more important matters to attend to. Such as? Making sure the word "lunatic" is excised from federal law so as not to "contribute to the stigmatization of mental health conditions." The U.S. House of Representatives approved the 21st Century Language Act, which allows the word "idiot" to remain, on Wednesday, 398-1. The lunatic who voted against it? Texas Republican Louie Gohmert, who said, "Not only should we not eliminate the word 'lunatic' from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington." Actually, that doesn't sound idiotic at all. [Source]
