From the great State of Maryland, we have Roscoe Bartlett, a Republican.
Rep. Bartlett, 86, is the second-oldest member of the House of Representatives and is a founding member of the Tea Party Caucus.
Bartlett recently blasted working mothers at a campaign stop:
“This isn’t the politically correct thing to say, but when we drove the mother out of the home into the workplace and replaced her with the television set, that was not a good thing.”
During the same campaign swing, Bartlett said he believed “the Information Age is just a high-tech bubble,” noting “You can’t eat those electrons. They won’t keep the rain off your head. They won’t take you anywhere.”
Bartlett also recently compared federally-issued student loans to the Holocaust.
A graduate of primarily Seventh-day Adventis schools, Roscoe Bartlett really wanted to be a minister. He has served Maryland’s 6th congressional district since 1993, and is facing an uphill battle for re-election.
