But suddenly, a new contender has emerged

As was put so eloquently by another blogger on his Facebook page yesterday, somebody said something stupid at the City Council, and it wasn’t Councilmember Brown.

Councilmember Jack Christie has Houston politicos scratching their heads over how someone who used to be on a School Board could say something SO ignorant and just plain stupid.

The Chronicle reported that he voted against allocating money for flu vaccines because the federal money being appropriated was “borrowed” and because, and I quote–“You don’t die from the flu.” I don’t even. Christie went on to say that the flu shots create “synthetic immunity” and urged people to not take the flu shots, just like he does.

For the record, even though “Dr. Jack Christie” holds himself out as one, he isn’t a real doctor, not a “MD” or “DO” anyways. He’s a chiropractor. The Chronicle article goes on to quote ACTUAL doctors who totally repudiate Christie’s claims. Almost nothing of what he said is true.

This brings me back to what I was discussing last week. Why is nobody running against this guy?? He was the lone dissenter in a vote that Helena Brown voted for. He has taken the crown, at least for the week, of “craziest Councilmember” from Ms Brown. For context on the title of this post, see the youtube link below.
