Hey Frederica Wilson, the Death of a Soldier is No Laughing Matter

In a way, you have to pity Frederica Wilson. As a thoroughly undistinguished member of Congress, she’s had to resort to all sorts of hijinks to grab the spotlight

Such as when she inserted herself into the Travon Martin case, inflaming an already tense situation with race-baiting rhetoric and calls to imprison George Zimmerman before there was even a trial. Then there’s her choice of headwear–those weird, sequined cowboy hats that look as if they came from a Halloween costume or a drag show (take your pick). Long ago, Wilson must have made the calculation that if people of District 24 didn’t even know her name, they’d at least remember her as that loudmouth with the funny fashion sense, so what the hell I’ll vote for her.
