Keith Olbermann Slams MO State Rep. Davis for Touting the Virtues of Child Hunger

In her June newsletter to constituents, Missouri State Representative Cynthia Davis extolled the virtues of childhood hunger. Davis said, “Hunger can be a positive motivator.”Tonight on MSNBC’s Countdown host Keith Olbermann hammered Davis’ lack of compassion. Check out the video.

Davis argued that hungry kids should get a job, “Anyone under 18 can be eligible? Can’t they get a job during the summer by the time they are 16? Hunger can be a positive motivator. What is wrong with the idea of getting a job so you can get better meals? Tip: If you work for McDonald’s, they will feed you for free during your break.”

Here is Olbermann naming Davis “The Worst Person in the World”:

Olbermann said, “It is embarrassing enough that Cynthia “Let them eat McDonalds” Davis is a public servant paid by tax dollars, but she is also the chairwoman of the Missouri house special standing committee on children and families. It would seem that her advocacy of hunger would disqualify her from that job, and that we’d be better off if she was working at a McDonalds. Although clearly, she has used, and is using, hunger as a positive motivator, because she seems to have been starving her brain of the recommended daily dosage of intelligence and humanity and oxygen.”

The only thing that I can add to Keith Olbermann’s comments is that the poor have always been an easy of blame for many Republicans. Whether they are trying to impose voting laws that act as a defacto poll tax, or cutting programs to make room for tax cuts, this is standard operating procedure for some Republicans who are always trying to put selfishness ahead of the needs of the community.

  1. And the GOP wonders why they were clobbered in the last two election cycles. If they ever want to win again they need to lose these psycho ultraconservatives and put a gag on Rush and O’Reilly.

  2. People like Rep. Davis have no business in office. I can’t believe she is also the chairwoman of the Missouri house special standing committee on children and families. Come on Missouri! You can do better than this!

    Their job is to save Missouri from Republicans like her. Sounds good to me!

  3. Very interesting report regarding child hunger. More awareness should be created on this important issue. Video is really nice. Thanks for sharing.

    You know, I have done a little reading about the younger people coming into the GOP. In 10-15 years abortion will no long er be a GOP talking point, as most of the younger people will be pro choice. The more people that get into voting, the more liberal veiw points will be seen.

    Im not sure if that good or bad, because that also means there will be little difference between the party’s. If the dems become more fiscal, my god, we could be voting for people on their own merits instead of on their party’s!

    Rush! We gotta talk big boy!

  8. I saw this back in June, and considering the all the other nutjobs out here, it’s not surprising. I can only hope that the good people of Missouri will send her packing the first chance they get, because she definitely deserves a place among the unemployed.
