Asked to clarify his comments after the breakfast speech at the Trussville Civic Center, Bachus said 17 members of the U.S. House are socialists.
Wait! It's 207! No, It's not! It's 104! No, Wait a minute! It's 275!
I don't want to make too much of his last name, but I think he's hitting the sauce (Heinz 57, that is).
