I saved this for today because if I had posted it yesterday, you would have thought it was my April Fool’s joke.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your delectation and delight, I give you Sue Everhart, the chair of Georgia’s state GOP. Ms. Everhart told the Marietta Daily Journal that if gays are allowed to get married, straight people will take advantage of it.
“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” Everhart said. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.”
I wonder if I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry was on Spike this weekend. Because nothing inspires social upheaval like an Adam Sandler movie about two straight guys pretending to be gay and getting married to get healthcare benefits.
The stupid not only burns, it flames.
