The Grand Old Party


The Republican Party in South Dakota is really scraping the barrel to find a candidate for the United States Senate. Really. Here's what he said in 2006 about incest and rape being exceptions in anti-choice anti-abortion legislation:

"I think 'rape and incest' is a buzzword. It's a bit of a throwaway line and not everybody who says that really understands what that means. How are you going to define that?" --South Dakota state Rep. Joel Dykstra (R-Lincoln County) on why the state legislature didn't include those exceptions in its abortion ban, April 20, 2006.

Gee Wiz -- just how do you define rape and incest, Einstein?

Sad. So very sad.
