Did my last post imply…

…that new and obscure members of the House might be particularly motivated by the chance to get national press coverage? I’m probably just being cynical. On the other hand, there’s this:

WASHINGTON (AP) — In another swipe at the French, a Florida congresswoman [Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite, first-termer] has proposed that the government pay for families who might want to bring home from France the remains of Americans who fought and died in the world wars.

And for that matter, who outside of Ohio had heard of Bob “Freedom Fry” Ney (R-OH) or Walter “Freedom Toast” Jones (R-NC) until they de-Frenchified House cafeteria menu? (My take on the menu change is here)
