Happy Thanksgiving! Bwahaha!

Tomorrow is the date of the American holiday called Thanksgiving, for those of you sweet readers who live elsewhere. It's a time to refer to the early European immigrants and how they arrived on this continent.

But you don't actually have to know history to do it, as shown in this video where Rep. Todd Akin (R. Mo.) makes up interesting novel arguments about the political systems of seventeenth century Europe:

A summary:

The far-right lawmaker believes the Pilgrims were "a great bunch of Americans," who "came here with the idea that, after trying socialism, that it wasn't going to work. They realized that it was unbiblical and it was a form of theft. So they pitched socialism out; they learned that in the early 1620s."
My tummy hurts from laughing so much.
