Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) did what politicians always do in times of tragedy and called for prayers after the Ft. Hood shooting, as though prayer was going to change anything. When a constituent replied to him on Twitter suggesting that perhaps public policy would work better than prayer, Olson was mighty upset.
Olson then went on a right wing radio show and obsessed over this, bringing it up several times and saying that the person who said it should “get the heck out of America.” Glad you’re being calm and rational about this, congressman.
