May traverse

Just when you think the Republican party couldn't get any more self destructive they decide to hold a Values Voters Summit where their nonsense can be broadcasted for all to read and hear. The purpose of the Summit was to educate Republicans on issues of morality in legislative issues, cause they're far more important than say balancing the budget or foreign policy.

Anyways a gem of a conservative, who happens to be Sen Tom Coburn's (R-OK) Chief of Staff, took center stage at his own lecture to speak about pornography. In it he describes the worst side effect of looking at naked people. In his estimation it will give you a case of the gays whether you want it or not.

Yes according to this genius people choose to have sex with the same gender and porn will make you want to touch another guy's penis. He also goes on to talk about how he spent a lot of time around preteen boys (wtf?) and noticed how homophobic they are, but Larry Flint Industries may change all that. In his mind that won't do.

I don't need to go into a long diatribe about how ridiculous this is. I only need to make one point. If this man's theory were correct Richard Simmons would have nothing on my friend Corey.

"Now, think about that. And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants!" - Michael Schwartz

Who's the real nutjob? The Republican politician who makes the wild and baseless claims, or the voter who believes him?

WTF?? I can't even wrap my head around the fact that such people exist.

Sounds pretty ridiculous. Does that mean we can't look at ourselves naked without repercussions? ha
