Morons of the week

HONORABLE MENTION: Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo, leader of the Republicans' xenophobe lobby, addressed at the Tea Party convention by calling for the return of Jim Crow-era voting laws. And Teabaggers wonder why anyone could possibly see extremism in their "movement."



WINNER: Georgia Sen. Saxby Chamblis, as quoted by The New Yorker:

“the presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts” would be likely to create an atmosphere susceptible to “alcohol use, adultery, fraternization, and body art.”

Except in a few states, gays can't get married so they can't commit adultery.

And if you banned alcohol and tattoos from the military, you wouldn't have much of a military left.

Hey,

I'm starting a local political blog, The Adirondack Socialist, and was hoping you might add it to your links page. It would be a great help. Thanks for considering it.
