NJ Senator RIPS Snooki -- She's a 'Degenerate'

4/8/2011 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

New Jersey state Senator Joe Kyrillos is waging war with Snooki from "The Jersey Shore" -- first proposing a law because of her ... then saying she's "a degenerate." NJ politics at its finest!

Kyrillos wants a law in place that would prevent student funds from being used to finance events some students find objectionable ... this, after Rutgers forked over $32,000 to Snooki for an on-campus Q&A session. 

Kyrillos went to describe Snooki as "a degenerate reality television star who offers neither useful advice nor any appreciable talents."

Ok, maybe he has a point.

Snookie is what she is, young, dumb, and only for a minute. Calling Mr. K a degenerate NJ politician would just be over the top, heh???

Note to Senator - people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

I have to say I'm pretty tired of all the hatred directed towards the Jersey Shore kids. No, they are certainly not perfect, but who of us is? As if everyone here bashing Snooki has never gotten drunk at a club, had sex with someone they weren't in a relationship with or said things that weren't exactly the most intelligent. Let's not forget she is on a show where she is followed around all summer, and all we get to see is 45 minutes of it once a week. Plus, from watching the show, I get the impression that Snooki is a fairly average young adult. I find her to be a sweet girl who is a also a good friend.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Idiocy at its best. If this law gets passed he just shot himself in the foot.

"...would prevent student funds from being used to finance events some students find objectionable"

Who decides that? *Some* of the students? What's the deciding percentage, or is it just majority rules? What if it's something so ridiculous that most of the students want it, but after a protest led by a small group of very vocal whiny students who drag the local paper into it, it's quashed?

For a politician he doesn't seem to have thought this through very well. Not surprising. Maybe he should think better about hanging his peeves onto people who give not a damn about them.

Really Now    

If everyone, according to the posters here, hates Jersey Shore and the cast how is it that the show remains so popular? If it is unpopular why is MTV doing two spinoffs from it? If you hate the show then dont watch it. Nobody is forcing you to or can force you to watch. There are many other options out there
