Rep. Brenda Barton disgraces Payson

By Jim Keyworth
Gazette Blog Editor

Who does Rep. Brenda Barton (R-Payson) think she is, claiming to represent us and then likening President Obama to Adolf Hitler?

She is a glaring example of what's wrong with politics today.

Her ignorance of history confirms her stupidity.

And now, she is making Payson the laughingstock of Arizona.

Consider what E.J. Montini wrote in today's (Oct. 10) Arizona Republic:

"...we have an elected Republican representative in the Arizona Legislature willing to equate a political spat in Washington, D.C., to the Holocaust."  In the process, she refers to Obama as "De Fuhrer."

To my Republican friends in Payson: when will you elect people who truly represent the values you hold?

Of course, if your primary source of news is the Payson Roundup, you probably have no clue that Rep. Barton is making you and your fellow Payson Republicans look really, really bad.  If that's the case, please take a minute to click on to read Montini's entire column.  If you are the rational Republicans I believe are the majority in this community, you will be appalled.

And, finally, to Rep. Barton.  You don't represent me.  You don't represent my values.  You need to resign and take a good World History course at our local community college.  And while you're at it, maybe an ethics course.

We will never progress as a nation or a state as long as we elect Bozos like you.

Too many ignorant nasty Tea Party and their ilk. Barton is just representative of them, but Arizona will change for the better. I hope I live to see it.
