GOP Rep. Kit Roupe of Colorado Springs doesn’t want you to forget that Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00AM this coming Sunday:
Hey, wait a minute! That’s Texas high school student Ahmed Mohamed, who built a clock for a high school science project that made national news after being not-really-but-sort-of mistaken by school officials for a bomb–mostly because the kid’s last name is “Mohamed.” President Barack Obama praised Mohamed’s science project, and even invited him to bring it to the White House, but that hasn’t stopped talking heads on the right from theorizing that the whole thing may have been a “dry run” test of security.
We could give this Colorado Springs Republican lawmaker the benefit of the doubt, but that would be better than poor Ahmed got from…well, lots of her fellow Republicans! In the absence of an explanation, you’ll just have to speculate about her punchline.
Who knows, maybe there is one.
