A Horse Is A Horse

J.D. Hayworth, former Congressman from Arizona, is trying to unseat John McCain in the GOP primary for Senate. One of his more novel approaches is to go after the horsey set.

Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that the expansion of state laws allowing gay marriage could lead to people marrying horses.

Hayworth, during an interview with an Orlando, Fla., radio station explained: “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.'”

“Now how dangerous is that?” asked Hayworth, who is challenging Sen. John McCain from the right in Arizona’s GOP Senate primary.

“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,” he continued. “I guess that would mean if you really had affection for your horse, I guess you could marry your horse.”

He’s right, since a horse is capable of reading, understanding, and signing a legally-binding contract.

Well, not just any horse, of course.

If there’s a Mrs. Hayworth, can she be busted for marrying a horse’s ass?
