The Idiot of the Day award goes to Judy Manning:
State Representative Judy Manning said she was shocked to receive death threats over the bill to ban the candy. “Some people think their rights are their rights,” she said.
While I prefer to refrain from threatening the lives of state legislators (I save my death threats for real criminals: Congress), I think that quote tells us a lot about the mindset of Ms. Manning. The People’s rights belong to the her and the Government for them to dole out as they best see fit.
