That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Interview with US Representative Kimble

with 7 comments

In a Thatsrightnate first, we were lucky enough to land an interview with US Representative Jack Kimble (R-CA) who was one of the lucky Republicans to actually survive reelection this past November.  Representative Kimble is known for his conservative values as well as his keen financial mind that helped him run his family’s poultry business before becoming a member of the United States House.

Nate: Representative Kimble, it is indeed a pleasure to get the chance to interview you.

Rep. Kimble: The pleasure is all mine Nate.   Conservative blogs like yours are a big part of our strategy to counter the liberal media elite.

Nate: Thank you.  I’m glad to know you follow my blog.  Do you have a favorite article.

Rep.Kimble:  [Laughing] Well that’s one way to tell if I actually read it.  Your political commentary is great, but to be honest I really enjoy your music segments too.  I have favorited the Apache video by Tommy Seebach.  I have that song in my IPod now too.

Nate: Is it easier to be a freshman representative or to be in the minority?

Rep. Kimble: Unfortunately, I’ve never been in the majority.  They get the plum committee spots, the good offices, and such.  It is much better to be in the majority.

Nate: What is your main goal for this Congress?

Rep.Kimble: We wish to be a loyal, but agressive opposition to the President.  As he tries to take our country down the road to Socialism, we wish to put on the brakes.

Nate: If you do that, the country will owe you a great debt.  What kind of legislation would you like to pass?

Rep.Kimble:  I don’t understand the question.

Nate: I mean.  Are there laws that you would like to push through congress?

Rep. Kimble: Like legislation?

Nate: Yes.  We’re facing a large number of problems in this country right now.  The economy is in the tank, we have two wars going on, Iran, North Korea, medical costs keep rising, terrorism.  What would you like to get passed?

Rep.Kimble: Oh all that stuff is very important to us.

Nate: Great.  What would you like to see done?

Rep. Kimble: Well, uhm I think the  tax burden needs to be addressed….You know…The upper end of the tax bracket is ridiculous.

Nate:  Exactly.  Anything else?

Rep.Kimble: I think all publicly funded universities should offer classes in creationism.

Nate: I know Michelle Bachman hammered Obama hard about hypothetically getting rid of the dollar.   I’ve been strong about him hypothetically replacing English with Esperanto.  Glenn Beck has done a marvelous job stading up to hypothetical fascism.  Are there any hypothetical threats you would be opposed to?

Rep.Kimble: Pretty much all of them.   I’d add eliminating the tax exemption from churches and also repealing the 2nd amendment.

Nate: Those are good ones.  What are the main things your trying to stop in the Obama agenda?

Rep.Kimble:  AmeriCorps worries me.  This sounds like re-education camps for young people really.  This is just what Mao did you know.  Get these people out in the country and then turn them into puppets of the state.  I know it isn’t part of Obama’s agenda exactly, but I’m also troubled by what’s going on in Iowa.  You know that K-12 little children will be forced to learn that homsexuality is normal and they should try it and they will be given explicit instructions on how to do so.  We must protect our children from this.

Nate: Its scary what’s going on in this country.

Rep.Kimble: Thank you for having me on your blog Nate.  As Republicans, we haven’t always been as quick to embrace new media as we should.  It is great to have people like yourself on the frontlines of the cultural war.

Nate: Thanks for being here Representative Kimble.  I hope that you will come back again.

UPDATE: Congressman Kimble has joined many of his Republican colleagues in starting his own blog as a way of reaching his constituents.   It may be of some interest even to those of you who like me do not live in his district.

  2. Representative Kimble is not only one of California’s top legislative minds, but his business acumen took his family’s poultry business from the brink of collapse to become a multi-million dollar company. I would hardly call him stupid.

  3. As satire these are pretty good. ‘….what other hypothetical issues should we be concerned about?..’
    Colbert-esque says I.
    and the RNC survey responses were very witty as well.

  4. Hey, this guy thinks this was a serious interview… you should go to his (Kimble’s) blog and read about it and see what he says…lol He is something.
    He also thinks we are too hard on poor Michele Bachmann. Asked me to go easy on her.. said it was the media’s fault she is coming off so crazy.
