Last week, New York state senator Greg Ball made a tweet, which as we all know is never a good idea for an elected official whose name sounds like genitals.

"Ball 4 NY" indeed.
Bravely calling for the torture of a 19-year-old American citizen who was already wounded and in police custody, Ball decided to stand tall and spend the next several days showing his constituents exactly why they voted for him: to make irrational decisions motivated entirely by retaliatory emotions, and to respond to every situation with violence.
3He Says What He Means (Even Though It's Crazy)
For starters, Ball says what he is thinking and doesn't give one scalding damn if it gets him re-elected or not. In fact, he cares so little about what people think that he reminds us of it constantly, often with the exact same phrasing.
On CNN: "You interview a lot of politicians, a lot of politicians are full of crap, they're scared of their own shadow, and scared to say what they feel. I think that I share the feelings of a lot of red-blooded Americans ..."
On Capital Tonight: "Let's just step back a second. I mean, you making [sic] a living out of interviewing politicians and others, and I understand that most politicians are completely full of crap ..."
"Fortunately, I take regular enemas."
