Come together, right now

8 02 2012

With all apologies to morons, Representative Louis Gohmert is a moron:

“The court, as I understand it today, struck down a law that said marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s interesting that there are some courts in America where the judges have become so wise in their own eyes that they know better than nature or nature’s God,” Gohmert said on the House floor.

“Nature seemed to like the idea of an egg and a sperm coming together because of pro-creation,” he continued. Drawing a parallel to Iowa Supreme Court justices who ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in 2009, he said, “Apparently they thought the sperm had far better use some other way biologically, combining it with something else.”

If nature really wanted sperm and eggs to come together, why keep ’em so far apart in the first place?

In any case, given that as few as twenty percent of all fertilized eggs result in a live birth, nature may want sperm and egg to play together, but not stay together.

Serious subject, but you have me snorting with laughter. “…why keep em so far apart in the first place?”. Classic.

An afternoon post is one thing, but 8 AM? Total anarchy!

This is great evidence that as a nation we are progressing toward being “people”, rather than fitting us into arbitrary groups such as “women”,”men”,”gay”,”black”,”special needs”. Not fast enough sometimes, but getting there.

People. Equal. With different needs and wants. Even the morons have a place.

@BJ: Do remember that I was writing on East Coast time (faster! more obnoxious!), and the only reason I banged it out then was because if I didn’t do it then, I would have been too lazy to do so when I got home from work.

As for morons having a place, let us remember the immortal words of Senator Roman Hruska, who, speaking in favor of G Harrold Carswell’s nomination to the Supreme Court, argued “Even if he were mediocre, there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren’t they, and a little chance? We can’t have all Brandeises, Frankfurters and Cardozos.”

Carswell didn’t make it.

@dmf. Ha.
