    You have to just love it when a bright, orange colored dude from Ohio will shut the United States Government down, simply because they will not agree to defund Planned Parenthood. Actually, this orange colored man is not even from this planet and he cries at the drop of a hat; he also erroneously believes Planned Parenthood is using Federal monies for abortion. (NOT a FACTUAL belief at all)
    It really doesn't matter though, because the Pee Baggers have this guy so scared he is going to wet his pants and start crying on national TV any moment now.
    This is the type of people Ohio puts into government to do the work of the PEOPLE!
