Like A Dead Chicken Around A Dog's Neck

Filed under Republican Stupidity, right-leaning John Cole rips Texas Republican Gov. Perry for desiring to seperate the queers from the steers:

"Texans have made a decision about marriage and if there is some other state that has a more lenient view than Texas then maybe that's a better place for them to live," Perry said.

However, that signature was only ceremonial, since voters must approve the same-sex ban in November.

"A nurturing home with a loving mother and loving father is the best way to guide our children down the proper path," said Perry, who was joined by several legislators. He also thanked the "pro-life" and "pro-family" organizations.
Single mothers? Screw them. Single fathers? Fuck you. Grandparents raising their grandkids cuz mom and dad can't care for them properly? Go fuck yourselves.

To which John responded:

Bigots, the whole lot of them.
A commenter had this to say:

.... next time you hear Republicans doing their hyena laugh over Howard Dean, remember this topic, and observe what is really going on here.

Howard Dean knows that hanging the albatross of the so-called "christian" right around the neck of the Republican party is exactly, precisely and absolutely the right thing to do.

He knows that "real" Dems are fired up by this stuff. He knows that there are a hundred more Perrys out there to shoot their party in the groin with their hypocrisy and their lies and their phony preachments. He knows that they're wrong, and he knows that the long term politics here are going to work in our favor ("our" as in large-D politics).

And make no mistake, Republicans. You own Perry. You own Dobson. You own Frist. You own the whole smarmy lot of them and their bullshit, and we are going to hang it around your necks with a pink ribbon as much as it takes and as long as it takes for you to come to your senses.

Don't like it? Too bad. You brought these potatoheads to the party, and you are going to drive them home. It is not seemly for you to try to run away from them, now that you used them to get power. You can run, but you can't hide.

I don't get mad when a Perry makes an ass of himself. I get happy, because I know that every day that passes while Repubs who sold their soul to this devil do nothing to repudiate this stuff, is a day closer to then end of this national nightmare.

Yeah. It's like Powell's Pottery Barn Rule: They broke it. They own it.

Except everyone suffers because of it.

IMHO, a better way to put it:

"They broke it. We pay for it."
