Now for one our regular features, it's the Clown Award, given as always for an act of meritorious stupidity.
I almost gave the Big Red Nose this week to a nitwit named Mark Cole, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates who is so creepily obsessed with the idea of transgender students using the "wrong" restroom that he has introduced a bill saying that, and I'm quoting:
Local school boards shall develop and implement policies that require every school restroom, locker room, or shower room that is designated for use by a specific gender to solely be used by individuals whose anatomical sex matches such gender designation,with "anatomical sex" defined in the bill as "the physical condition of being male or female, which is determined by a person's anatomy."
What should be immediately apparent is that there is no way schools could effectively enforce this requirement except by examining each child's genitals before they are allowed to use the restroom. Which I expect pretty much everywhere would be regarded as sexual assault.
That is some powerful stupid. Really didn't think that one through, didja Marky?
|Gov. Nikki Haley|
Governor Vacant Eyes gave the GOPper response to the Amazing Mr. O's State of the Union address and got some pushback because she said something about not following "the angriest voices." In defending herself afterwards, she said this:
[W]e've never in the history of this country passed any laws or done anything based on race or religion. Let's not start that now.I really don't think I need to go on with any explanations.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, this week's and already in the running for the year's biggest, clown.
