looks like sumbudy shoulda studied her cipherin'Stacey Campfield, the Tennessee “law” maker who has thus far blown away the competition in our search for Legislative Shitmuffin of 2013, continues to leave all other comers eating his dust. And how has he been a Being A Total Dick MACHINE today? Oh, just telling an eight-year-old girl handing him a petition (asking him not to starve the dumb kids) that she is “a prop” is all. Everyone else — even you, nice and fun and wonderfully intelligent lady from North Carolina — go home. Your measly attempts at legislative shitmuffinery have done been CRUSHED. Campfield, you are a goddamned legislative shitmuffin GENIUS.

An 8-year-old girl confronted state Sen. Stacey Campfield, R-Knoxville, in the hallways of the state legislature this morning, telling him she’s worried about Tennessee children.

The young girl handed him a petition signed by about 2,500 people against his welfare bill.

It was part of a demonstration against Campfield’s SB132, which would pull a percentage of welfare benefits from families where children fail a grade. Parents could get the money back by proving they attended two parent-teacher conferences, enrolled in parenting classes, or enrolled their children in tutoring or summer school.

“How are you? Thanks for coming,” Campfield told the girl. “I love it when people use children as props.”

Oh Stacey, you beautiful bastard. How do you do the hoodoo you do? It is obviously not luck, but hard hard work. Campfield, you goddamn overachiever, we salute you.
