Missouri state Rep. Cynthia Davis says -- and does -- a lot of crazy things. If the O'Fallon Republican's mouth is moving, there's a good chance the words coming out are completely untrue. Like when Davis wrote a letter to a constituent denying telling a reporter that her bill offering scholarships to stay-at-home moms who watch "soap operas and eat bonbons all day" excluded stay-at-home dads because fathers aren't "natural nurturers." You know, because men can't breast feed.
"I can assure you that I would never say such a thing especially since I am married to one of the most marvelous men in the country," Davis wrote. "He is the one who is picking up the slack at home with our children while I am at the Capitol."
