On Sunday, Arizona CD3 Congressional candidate Gabby Mercer posted the following on her Facebook page:
A lesson in irony.
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is actually proud of the fact it is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.
This ends today's lesson.
Before long, scores of Arizonans, and others, had expressed their anger, contempt and disdain for Mercer in comments under the post.
And not long after that, Mercer had taken the post down, apparently deciding that Arizonan voters are not yet ready for her brand of compassionless conservatism.
