GOP Congressman: CNN's Carol Costello 'Beautiful' But Not Honest - VIDEO


In an artful display of chauvinism and condescension, Republican Representative Todd Rokita (Indiana), while appearing on CNN's show News Room this morning to discuss the government shutdown and the protracted battle over Obamacare, told anchor Carol Costello, "You're beautiful, but you need to be honest."

However, as Jezebel points out, the awkward exchange did not end there, with Rokita making comments such as, "I don’t know if you have children yet, I’m sure you don’t have grandchildren yet, you look much too young, but we’re fighting for them. Carol, do you have any idea how much this law is going to cost?"

  1. "Well, if we want to discuss looks, you are a plump, unattractive doughboy. Above and beyond that, your remarks are, given the fact you are a Republican fool, appropriately asinine."

  3. More Hoosier wackiness out of our state... we really do pick 'em, don't we?

    Rokita has a long history of saying very stupid things.
