One doesn’t expect excessive amounts of wisdom from Sen. Jim Demint (R-SC), the troglodyte who recently told an audience, according to the Spartanburg Herald, that “if someone is openly homosexual or if an unmarried woman sleeps with her boyfriend, then that person shouldn't be allowed in the classroom,” but this is a new level of stupid. When asked to comment on Gov. Mitch Daniels’ suggestion that it’s time for détente in the culture war, Demint tells Fox News that one “can’t be a fiscal conservative and not be a social conservative.” Check out the video here, via Allahpundit (skip about 3 minutes in).
Now you know why pornography expert and local sociopath Alvin Green got 362,000 votes (without campaigning or managing to put together a coherent sentence) in his race against Demint. Who knew South Carolina had so many gay and/or cohabitating teachers.
In related news, Greene is considering a run for the White House.
