Political silly season

With the mid-term elections coming up in a few weeks, the loonies are most definitely out there, making - as usual - complete idiots of themselves. Let's start the season with a "light" one:

House representative Larry Brown (R-NC) appears to not be too enamored with gay people. In an email string (for context see here), he said, and I quote: "I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him. I'm sure there will be a couple of legislative fruitloops there in the audience."

Queers. Fruitloops. Hmm.

Now, clearly, this doesn't rise to the level of anything extraordinary - after all, by now we all should be accustomed to seeing this sort of garbage. It just blows me away that there still are politicians up on the hill, supposedly representing us, "the people," who maintain this kind of outdated, ill-informed bigotry. And, sadly (and more importantly), this fool is running unopposed in November.

(Thanks, John, for alerting me to this one!)
