How'd that Asshole get in Here?

The AP reports on a rather embarassing developement for Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo.

Nobody expects to get a letter from a member of Congress that ends with an expletive.

But that's what happened when Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., recently corresponded with a resident of her southeast Missouri district. The letter ended with a profane, seven-letter insult beginning with the letter a - "i think you're an ..."

Emerson says she can't explain how the offensive language made it into the last line of the letter, which otherwise reads like a typical response to a citizen's question about last year's testimony of oil executives before the Senate Commerce Committee.
This is really just fluff. I'm sure some staffer thought it would be funny. But hey, it's fun to poke these people with sticks. Especially if they give you an opening.
