Book cover saying: How-to guide, all you need to know
Pssst, Ms. Everhart ...
Another major fail for the Republican Party's rebranding effort: Today's edition features the chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party, explaining why marriage equality is a bad idea:
Sue Everhart, chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party, told the Marietta Daily Journal in a story published Saturday that once gay nuptials are legally permitted, there will be nothing to stop a straight person from exploiting the system in order to claim marital benefits. [...]

"There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride."

Well, sure. Because it's a well known fact that heterosexuals do not commit fraud. It's just so ... gay.

But, to be fair, potential fraud isn't Everhart's only concern:

"Lord, I’m going to get in trouble over this, but it is not natural for two women or two men to be married," Everhart said. "If it was natural, they would have the equipment to have a sexual relationship."
Hmmmm. Perhaps someone should tell Sue that having sex isn't limited to being flat on your back with a (flannel) nightgown thrown over your face.
