A Connecticut republican has popped off, offering a simple solution to the state's massive budget deficit.
"NY should taz (sic) crack and hookers and they would have a surplus," tweeted Connecticut's GOP chair Chris Healy on Dec. 17.
Apparently Healy got the memo from conservative guru Grover Norquist about the party's need to embrace new social networking technology.
People "enjoy authenticity, enjoy real expression as it’s defined in that moment," Healy told The Journal Inquirer. "One has to be careful, and there’s always a chance that people could look at it and be offended, but that’s the risk you take when you try to be authentic and show people what’s going on out there."
"I don’t think I’m pushing the envelope too much," said Healy.
