I was perusing the 40 most obnoxious quotes of 2005 (Right Wing Edition– someone send me the left-wing edition if someone has done one), and I saw this quote:
Absolutely (I had sex with animals). I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule.”
First off, BLECH!.
Second, that is batshit-insane anti-abortion advocate Neil Horsley on Hannity and Colmes:
Colmes: “You had sex with animals?”
Horsley: “Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule.”
Colmes: “I’m not so sure that is so.”
Horsley: “You didn’t grow up on a farm in Georgia, did you?”
Colmes: “Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia has a mule as a girlfriend?”
Horsley: It has historically been the case. You people are so far removed from the reality…Welcome to domestic life on the farm…”
Horsley is the guy who looks like a mildly retarded Abe Lincoln in the HBO documentary Soldiers in the Army of God, which follows the lunatics around as they plot their anti-abortion schemes and debate the relative merits of Eric Rudolph and bombing abortion clinics. I didn’t think there was anything out there that could make these creeps any ickier, and I was wrong.
