An idiot Republican

Just so you know I don't just pick on idiot Democrats, here is a story of an idiot who identifies himself as a Republican.
A state senator wants to force Missouri stores to sell warm beer. Under a bill by Sen. Bill Alter, grocery and convenience stores would risk losing their liquor licenses if they sold beer colder than 60 degrees. The intent is to cut down on drunken driving by making it less tempting to pop open a beer after leaving the store.
Yeah, that's the answer, moron. What we need is more government interference to solve the problem. Drunk driving isn't caused by the temperature of the beer. People drive drunk because of where they are when they drink as opposed to where they sleep. People who buy beer at a grocery store are buying it to take home and drink for the most part.

We have enough laws. Enforce the ones on the books. I can't speak for every area, but when I was in the Navy in Virginia I had to accompany many a junior sailor to court appearances and noticed a clear cut trend in how judges handle drunk driving. If the driver was honest and remorseful they were convicted of DUI. If the driver said nothing but paid a lawyer to speak, the charge would be reduced to reckless driving. Judges are all lawyers and it seems like they more harshly punish people who don't utilize their profession.
