Lights on – anyone home?

ken-fredette-sizedWhen we say politicians live in a different universe, we’re talking about stuff like this.

Maine State Ken Fredette is a Republican, which to some people gives him an excuse.

They think different from most people.

He made a bizarre speech this week about how women supposedly think Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid is “free.”

He says his man’s brain understands the actual cost.

Speaking on the Maine House floor, Fredette started talking about the book “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus” to explain to his colleagues why women’s brains could not understand Obamacare correctly.

“As I listen to the debate today and earlier debate on this bill, I can’t help but think of a title of a book, ‘Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.’  It’s a book about the fact that men sort of think one way in their own brain, in their own world. And women think another way in their own brain and in their own world. And it really talks about the way that men and women can do a better job at communicating.”

Here it comes…

“Because if you listen to the debate today, in my mind, a man’s mind, I hear two fundamental issues. From the other side of the aisle, I hear the conversation being about ‘free. This is free, we need to take it, and it’s free. And we need to do it now.’”

“And that’s the fundamental message that my brain receives. Now, my brain, being a man’s brain, sort of thinks differently, because I say, ‘Well, it’s not, if it’s free, is it really free?’ Because I say, in my brain, ‘There’s a cost to this.'”

We’re surprised all the lady politicians didn’t come over and whack him upside the head.

Our guess is no one was listening to him anyway.

End result, the State House voted to accept the Medicaid expansion, which Mr. Empty Brain so deeply opposed.
