I simultaneously want so much for this to be fake and so much for this to be real.

That's a video of Congresswoman Ann Wagner of Missouri. More specifically, if you believe the "hype," that is Ann Wagner picking her nose and eating the booger live on TV. If it's real, I'm sort of just flabbergasted. Your entire job as an elected representative is basically being trusted to look like an adult in adult situations. But I guess I have to admit: I'm an idealist. I want to believe that our elected representatives have our the public's interest in mind, and I want to believe that they don't eat their own nose pickings. Unfortunately, that's not always the case.
