America Ferrera Recognized by Misguided Congress

by at . Comments

Forget that pesky war in Iraq. It's a good thing Congress is focusing on what's really important:

Such as America Ferrera.

The New Ugly Betty

The Ugly Betty star, already honored at the Golden Globes, was recognized by a attention-seeking, misguided Congresswomen this week.

Hilda L. Solis (D-Calif.) took to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday to publicly salute Ferrera, 22, for her Globe win and for raising the profile of Latinos in popular culture.

"Madame Speaker, I rise today to congratulate America Ferrera for winning the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy for her work in the ABC show Ugly Betty," Solis said.

It's a good thing she didn't come in second. No way Ferrera would be a role model in that case.

"I commend America and everyone involved in Ugly Betty for helping to break down stereotypes and provide a role model for young Latinas," Solis added.

Look, we're big fans of Ferrera and all, but is this really the best use of Congress' time? Will it weigh in on the Angelina Jolie/Ryan Seacrest feud next? What about showing its support for all Sadie Murray has been through?

Solis is serving her third term in the House. She represents California's 32nd Congressional District and needs to find a better way to assist her constituents.

Otherwise, look for Isaac Cohen to soon be lauded for being a gentleman.
