Don’t Like It? Leave.

Representative Tom Tancredo (R-CO) apparently objects to having to smoke outside. He told CPAC (the annual gathering of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy where Ann Coulter called John Edwards a fag) that he objects:

I live in a place run by what I refer to as the lifestyle Nazis here in Washington, D.C., that don’t let you do things like smoke in public places, for God’s sake.

Of course, he doesn’t mind the nanny state when it suits his interests involving the FCC (increasing fines for broadcasting “indecent” material) and Gambling (eliminating online poker), but when it comes to his beloved cigars…it’s Lifestyle Nazism. Who’s the bigger nazi here, one that curtails me from seeing the Sopranos on broadcast TV, one that eliminates online poker, or one that eliminates smoking from public places? Not a clear decision? Okay, let’s put this one up then. Tancredo was one of those few asshats who voted against renewing the Voting Rights Act.

Yeah. I thought so.

So, Rep. Tancredo wants a little individual freedom, eh? I can think of one freedom he ought to exercise: the one to leave town. Preferably on a rail.

Major hat tip to DCist for the original story.
