One more Republican kinked about animals
On May 5, 2005, anti-abortion extremist Neal Horsley was a guest on The Alan Colmes Show, a FOX News radio program. The topic was an interesting one - whether or not an internet service provider should allow Horsley to post the names of abortion doctors on his website. Horsley does that as a way of targeting them and one doctor has been killed. In the course of the interview, however, Colmes asked Horsley about his background, including a statement that he had admitted to engaging in homosexual and bestiality sex.
At first, Horsley laughed and said, "Just because it's printed in the media, people jump to believe it."
"Is it true?" Colmes asked.
"Hey, Alan, if you want to accuse me of having sex when I was a fool, I did everything that crossed my mind that looked like I..."
AC: "You had sex with animals?"
NH: "Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule."
Yes, "mistakes were made."
As the Duchess said in the old story:
"I don't really care what people DO, so long as they don't frighten the horses."
But it looks like we'll have to update what the Duchess said for today's Republican party.
NOTE As Atrios points out, the Republicans, don't get the meaning of "consent" when it comes to sex. Animals can't, by definition, consent to sex, so for some--and who knows how many--Republicans, that's a point in favor of having sex with them. Rather like underage pages, trapped in a web of power relationships, in fact.
