Let’s not go against what this government — and everybody loves this Obama. Everybody said he’s the [devil]. I think we should check the back of his head to see if he has 666 there but that is another issue.”
–Southington Democratic town councilman Art Secondo, on President Obama. Where did that come from? You can see it in it’s original context in the town meeting minutes here, though the word “devil” has been replaced by three dashes. The strange digression came in the middle of a long, rambling speech about the economy.
(I had originally wanted to do the Quote of the Day on Rep. Piscopo’s global warming denial, but this is far stranger)
UPDATE: Secondo, who has apologized for the remark, states that he never said the word “devil.”
