A chicken in every crackpot

The internets are having a snarkfest over Nevada Senate candidate Sue Lowden's bartering for health care plan. She's made more than one public statement now claiming we could contain health care costs by using a bartering system. In her latest statement she recalls her grandparents generation trading a chicken for doctor's visits and by God, if it was good enough for them, it should be good enough for us. The only question that remains is what came first, the chicken or the egg on Lowden's face?

What's not funny however, is I'm told that she stands a pretty good chance of winning the election.

I'm sure she won't mind taking her salary in potatoes and giving up her free government health care if she does win. I'm sure she'll arrive on horseback wearing homespun too.

Best snark of the series was this comment: Crap. My doctor is a vegan. Sadly, I didn't think of it first.
