There's been so much real news lately it's hard to find time to
visit the Land of the Wingnuts. But it's tough to ignore the rantings of
Rep. Louie Gohmert - Surprise! A Texas Republican! - who managed to equate the Matthew Shephard hate crimes bill with legalizing necrophilia, bestiality, pedophilia and the advent of a "little guy with a mustache"
in 1930s Germany. Don't ask. Let's hope Gohmert doesn't frequent gun shows.
"If you're oriented toward animals, bestiality, then, you know,
that's not something that can be used against you...if you're oriented
toward corpses, toward children....This is scary stuff we're doing here
when we take away what has traditionally been an important aspect of
moral teaching in America."
