It’s not even lunchtime here at Casa Verde, but I’m already willing to bet this is the dumbest thing you’ll read all day — maybe all week:
Sue Everhart, the chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party, said in a story posted over the weekend that straight people might abuse gay marriage laws in order to get marital benefits.
“You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” Everhart told the Marietta Daily Journal. “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.”
Everhart added: “There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.”
It’d be like spending three years in law school, just to avoid getting eaten by sharks.
Hey, GOP — if you don’t want to be the Stupid Party, stop acting like it.
