Via Sam Stein, Arizona GOP Senate candidate JD Hayworth may have outdone Rick Santorum with this latest attack on gays and lesbians:
Appearing on Orlando, Fla. radio station WORL on Sunday, the Arizona conservative had what could be described as a Rick Santorum “man on dog” moment.
“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,'” Hayworth said. “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.”
Yep. Listen for yourself:
Hayworth is running against John McCain in the GOP Senate primary in Arizona. McCain is no ally, although his wife, Cindy, is on our side, which is probably why Hayworth is happy to inject this issue into the campaign. He’s counting on the hard-core homophobic vote.
Seriously, how do these GOPers come up with such bizarre and warped ideas? I mean, why do Hayworth and Santorum actually spend so much time pondering bestiality?
