Left Side of the Aisle #102 - Part 5

Clown Award: Georgia GOP chair Sue Everhart

From the news about same-marriage, we slide smoothly into the Clown Award, given for meritorious stupidity. Because this week the big red nose goes to someone else the Bible-thumpers haven't lost: Sue Everhart, the chair of the Georgia GOP.

Late last week Ms. Everhart said in an interview that straight people might enter into fraudulent gay marriages to obtain benefits.

Suppose, she said, you have a job with great benefits. You're straight and you have a straight friend. What, she said, and this is a quote,
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. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.
Now, of course it's theoretically possible that such a scenario could happen, but it could also happen with a man and a woman for exactly the same reason. And there isn't any evidence of any relevant amount of fraud in either case.

By the real reason she is our winner this week is that in the same interview, further demonstrating her remarkable intellect and wide-ranging worldly knowledge, Everhart also said she could not understand how two gay people could ever have sex. "If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship."

Ms. Everhart ... get out of the house on occasion. Read a book. Something. Ask your kids, they can probably explain it to you.

What a clown.
