Dr. Fiore is in: Cancer is a fungus that can be flushed out!

I think we should start a betting pool on just how many insane effusions will come out of Assemblywoman Michele Fiore's mouth every week.

Last week it was the "hot little girls" on campus remark to the paper of record. And now we have a new one for the gaffiest lawmaker ever, who already has said psychotropic drugs will be a major focus for her this session. 

Here's what she said on her radio show this weekend: "I call it my terminally ill bill," she said of new legislation she has proposed (no language yet), "basically changing some provisions of our health care system."

Fiore, who operates a home health care business that sometimes passes payroll taxes onto the IRS, said she knew of friends who left the country to find end-of-life treatments that are not FDA-approved. And then the payoff:

"If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus," she began, citing a widely debunked theory that the American Cancer Society warns about, "and we can put a pic line into your body and we're flushing with, say, salt water, sodium cardonate (I think she means bicarbonate), through that line and flushing out the fungus. These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective."

Yes, I am sure this bill will fly out.
