Have I Mentioned That the Republicans Have Lost Their Fucking Minds?

I was thinking of making this the “Wait, What?” moment of the day, but it’s just too vile for a light-hearted segment like that.

Via Dispatches from the Culture Wars, from AddictingInfo.org, quoting GOP Florida lawmaker Kathleen Passidomo:

There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gangraped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed up like a 21-year-old prostitute.

Holy Slut-Shaming, Batman!  Did you get that?  She wasn’t raped because the rapists were vile human beings who gang rape 11 year old girls, she was gang raped because of the way she was dressed.

And the person who said that was a fucking woman!

Do these people even listen to themselves?

Ed Brayton gets the quote of the day for writing exactly what I was thinking when I read this:

I think I’ve lost my ability to be shocked anymore. There is no position so vile that some Republican won’t take it.
