I’ve written about bad parenting in the past.  Crazy parents naming their children after Nazis.  Idiots who put their children into beauty pageants.  And who could forget that loon in England who gave her child a gift certificate for plastic surgery.

Well, there’s no shortage of these numbnuts.  The latest comes from New Jersey.  Patricia Krentzil.  Here’s a woman who’s obsessed with tanning.  Although this human leather purse denies that her child actually went into the tanning booth, her 6-year old daughter arrived at school with a “pretty severe sunburn.”

She now faces a second-degree child endangerment charge.  When asked if she thought this case was a witch hunt, she replied, “Yes. Yes.  There’s somebody out there on my whole life that doesn’t like me because they’re jealous, they’re fat and they’re ugly.”

All I can say is, “and she gets to vote in November.”
