J.D. Hayworth’s Marriage Menagerie

J.D. Hayworth, in an effort to out-wingnut John McCain in Arizona’s Senatorial primary, is claiming that legalized same-sex marriage can lead to man-horse nuptials. This is what he had to say during his Rick Santorum-like “man on dog” moment:

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? 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 — I guess that would mean if you really had affection for your horse, I guess you could marry your horse.

Now I’m very happily married to a human male right now. But just in case it doesn’t work out, I think this is wonderful news:

Hayworth’s Marriage Menagerie (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Would you like to be wed to a cat?
Or a horse, or a dog, or a bat?
Or even an ass?
Simply move out to Mass.
Hayworth says it’s okay. So that’s that.

    Actually, most married women I know agree that at one time or another they already ARE married to an ass. But that’s another story….

    This is part of an interview I had with that Joker Looking Guy (JLG):
    TOM: Congressman, you said, “Years ago while visiting a Hollywood movie set, I teabagged Francis the Talking Mule. Sure, that was an act of intimacy, but I don’t think it should mean that Francis and I are married.”
    JLG: I never said that.
    TOM: Yes, you did.
    JLG: My staff has watched the video of the interview. They read the transcript and even posted it on my website. Clearly, I never said anything about a talking mule!
    TOM: Well, we’ll just have to agree to disagree on that one. Besides, if it’s repeated often enough and loudly enough, Bingo! You said it. You also said that you still love Francis and that the two of you are moving to Boston.
    JLG: When did I ever say that?
    TOM: I don’t know when, but I do know you said it because it showed up in an email forward.
    JLG: If you’ll check your facts, as I have, you’ll find that Francis the Talking Mule has, sadly, passed away.
    TOM: That really is sick. Acts of intimacy with a dead mule!
    JLG: You know what? F*** you!
    TOM: And the horse I rode in on?

    Trolling the barnyards? A Load!
    No human would go down that road!
    Bestiality reigns
    In GOP brains
    Evol-ved no higher than toad.

    Too funny! And I know a lot of women that would agree with Big Boppa’s comment!

  6. Fascinating! I agree with Big Boppa, btw. I certainly was.
