No. We are not making this up. You can't make up silly stuff like this.
Our Congressman, Republican Mike Rogers, is a supporter of Ann Coulter. A person deemed too extreme by National Review. From the Livingston Economic Club,
Ann Coulter - Monday, October 1, 2007 - Johnson Center
This event kicks off Cleary University Founders Week Celebration. Ann Coulter is the author of five New York Times bestsellers — Godless (June 2006), How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) (October 2004); Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism (June 2003); Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right (June 2002); and High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton (August 1998).

U.S. CONGRESSMAN MIKE ROGERS
Just to be clear, Congressman, do you support a person who says things like the following?
"God says, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.'"
"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."
"They’re [Democrats] always accusing us of repressing their speech. I say let’s do it. Let’s repress them. Frankly, I’m not a big fan of the First Amendment"
"I think [women] should be armed but should not [be allowed to] vote. No, they all have to give up their vote, not just, you know, the lady clapping and me. The problem with women voting — and your Communists will back me up on this — is that, you know, women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend it. And when they take these polls, it’s always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care.”
"I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.”
“I would like evolution to join the roster of other discredited religions, like the Cargo Cult of the South Pacific. Practitioners of Cargo Cult believed that manufactured products were created by ancestral spirits, and if they imitated what they had seen the white man do, they could cause airplanes to appear out of the sky, bringing valuable cargo like radios and TVs. So they constructed ”airport towers“ out of bamboo and ”headphones“ out of coconuts and waited for the airplanes to come with the cargo. It may sound silly, but in defense of the Cargo Cult, they did not wait as long for evidence supporting their theory as the Darwinists have waited for evidence supporting theirs.”
"It turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word 'faggot,' so I'm kind of at an impasse -- I can't really talk about Edwards."
Cleary University can bring whoever they want to speak for their Founders Week Celebration. I don't care. I don't send my money or my children to that institution. But I do do care whether my Congressman supports such an ill-informed, homophobic, idiot.
So what do you say, Congressman?
