Oh, GOP. It's just unfathomable to me how anyone—let alone an entire BUNCH OF DUDES—could be so bad at not being the worst. It's impressive, really. The latest: Virginia state senator Dick Black has begun a run for congress to replace retiring GOP moderate Frank Wolf. In response, Mother Jones has put together a sort of "greatest hits" profile of all the mindblowingly shitty stuff Black has said over the years.
Call me new-fashioned, but I'm just not sure that a dude who thinks spousal rape shouldn't be illegal if "she's in a nightie" deserves to get a promotion. And, you know, MAKE LAWS.
