Rep. Nate Bell’s re-election as a Republican member of the Arkansas House guarantees extremist quote machine fodder. Remember when he used legislation about limiting cell phone use in school zones to tie Democrats (with a bogus quote) to Nazis?
Now he’s gone and offended the Libertarian Party by characterizing them on his Facebook page as “enemies of freedom, liberty and the Constitution.” He seems to think Mitt Romney lost because of libertarians, which gives you some idea of his intellectual throw-weight.
Riling a Libertarian is a good way to trigger an extended rejoinder, as any talk radio show host can tell you. Just for sport this morning, I pass it along, with Bell’s offending Facebook post.
