Funny story….remember the other day when that nutty Tea Bagger candidate running against John McCain (R-AZ), Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) said this?
“You see, the Massachusetts Supreme Court, when it started this move toward same-sex marriage, actually defined marriage — now get this — it defined marriage as simply, ‘the establishment of intimacy,'” said Hayworth, during an appearance on a Florida radio show on Sunday. “Now how dangerous is that? I mean, I don’t mean to be absurd about it, but I guess I can make the point of absurdity with an absurd point — I guess that would mean if you really had affection for your horse, I guess you could marry your horse. It’s just the wrong way to go, and the only way to protect the institution of marriage is with that federal marriage amendment that I support.”
Absurdities (or the lack thereof??) aside, John McCain is desperate because, for some reason, this guy has been popular and not long ago he was leading in the polls. John McCain has to do something to prevent that in the future. So he’s got to top Hayworth in the crazy “man and horse matrimony” department somehow. What is a losing Presidential candidate to do? Well, in McCain’s world you simply try the same thing that lost you the Presidential race all over again.
Force Sarah Palin on the voters in Arizona! That’ll do it!
See? (From the John McCain campaign website.)
How’s THAT for absurdity? Top that Tea Bagger with one who not only opposes gay marriage, and no doubt to horses, but could perhaps shoot a horse, single, married, gay or otherwise if it complemented the mashed potatoes on her dinner plate? Let me just say it wouldn’t be my choice for a campaign slogan, but OK….?
But hey, she lost him one election already, so who am I to judge?
A horse is a horse, of course, of course……..
