After rescuing a woman from a burning building, the smoke had to be treated for Cory Booker exposure. Chuck Norris looks on in awe.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) has already established himself as the most hands-on mayor in the entire universe despite governing the largest and one of the most dangerous cities in New Jersey. (Need your driveway cleared of snow? Booker’s out in the cold with a shovel on it.  Trapped inside a burning building? He’ll personally save you. Staying up all night because you waited until the last minute to finish a school report on the Mayor? He’s happy to help you write it. Have  some transgender friends who are nervous about moving to Newark?  Booker will call them personally. He’s so helpful he even annoys the Governor with his helpfulness.)

So when one of Booker’s Twitter followers — who describes herself as a “Daughter of the American Revolution (DAR), fighting against any and all forms of socialism/communism” — sparked a debate over food stamps, obviously, Booker was not just going to have a rhetorical debate with the woman. He proposed that they both go on food stamps for a week so they could both understand what that situation felt like:

    Neither Cory, the whitest African-American mayor I've ever seen, nor the woman from the DAR would be eligible for foodstamps — They have too much income. Foodstamps are for people with practically nothing to live on. And they'd probably spend most of that week that they're "on" foodstamps waiting in line and filling out applications. It's actually a very demeaning process. I know that for a fact!

      You're right, of course, but I'm guessing the experiment will have it so that they get a pre-set credit card for the amount that someone would get if they were actually on food stamps.

      But I'm waiting for the right-wing to say "Wealthy mayor goes on food stamps at tax-payers' expense!!!"

    This DAR lady, is she the genetic fallout of the DAR ladies who, in 1939, required Marian Anderson, internationally-known opera star, to perform – in the cold – on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, because blacks were not allowed in Constitution Hall? By the way, she drew a crowd of 75,000 (remember, this was 1939)

    Bummer, DAR.

    And the battle between people on opposite sides of the left-right paradigm goes on. Don't you think everyone else might be getting a little bored?

    We should get rid of those damn socialist sewers. Its the responsibility of each citizen to get rid of their own sewage. I wanna see how they do that on wall street.

    Sewer this, Gomez! And Linda, if ya don't stand in line for seemingly endless amounts of time, and fill out long, ridiculous forms where you must account for every minute of existence up to the present second, ya can't be on foodstamps! That's just the way it is, and if ya don't want to take my word for it, then take Cronkite's. Though I'm sure he's only heard about it second hand!

    I don't think they're being quite so literal about receiving an actual card. I think the "bet" entailed them living on the allotted stipend for recipients which seems to be about $139 per month per person. I hope they both try to do it would not seem to be easy to do under any circumstance.

      Exactly.

    Nah, nah, nah, Michael. Make them go thru that whole ordeal of going down, lining up, waiting, filling out the forms and supplying "verification", then waiting some more. They're either all in, or all out. I wanna see the rich in PAIN!

      But you know those industrious rich people are such innovators, they'll probably make a fortune bottling methane. (Beans are still cheap) Think of all the jobs! What would we ever do without the rich?

        You mean what would YOU do without the rich. Without the rich I'd probably be living a much better quality of life. But I do what I can, given the unfortunate realities.
