Tennessee Democrat Jim Cooper Attacks People With Down Syndrome To Mock Republican Voters

Quote:
Democrat Rep. Jim Cooper of Tennessee attempted to insult Republican voters in South Carolina by likening them to people with Down syndrome.

In a recent interview published in The Nashville Scene, Cooper said South Carolina voters have “extra chromosomes” for supporting South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s re-election instead of choosing Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison.

Quote:
Jim Cooper is about to begin his 16th term in Congress — his 10th representing the Nashville-based 5th Congressional District.

Q: What does it say that some of these Democratic Senate candidates could raise $100 million and still lose?

A: You're probably talking about Jaime Harrison, who was an outstanding candidate. But that is South Carolina. I've said for years that they have extra chromosomes, South Carolina voters. Anybody who could re-elect Lindsey Graham after his two-faced performance on federal judges, they have a tolerance that I can't imagine. The bottom line is this, money doesn't buy votes. And that's a good thing. We'd all be in worse shape if money could buy votes. Advertising can persuade a lot of folks, but it can't necessarily win elections. So many people who contributed, they don't really know South Carolina. They may have never visited South Carolina.

He would be lucky to be half as decent as DS kids.

What a twit.
