    this unsavory little tidbit about Tiahrt, which most of us had probably forgotten.   Arguing against public funding of abortions in the District of Columbia, Tiart said:

    "If you think of it in human terms, there is a financial incentive that will be put in place, paid for by tax dollars, that will encourage women who are -- single parents, living below the poverty level, to have the opportunity for a free abortion," said Tiahrt. "If you take that scenario and apply it to many of the great minds we have today, who would we have been deprived of? Our president grew up in a similar circumstance."

    "If that financial incentive was in place, is it possible that his mother may have taken advantage of it?" Tiahrt asked. "Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice, if those circumstances were in place, is it possible that we would be denied his great mind?

    Bingo!  A trifecta!  NRA poster boy, who is also a fanatical pro-"life" racist!

    Way to go, GOP!  You really know how to pick 'em!
