And you thought Todd Akin's comments were the lowest, most disturbing and disgusting level that the Republican Party could sink to?
HAH! Silly rabbit.
Meet Frank Szabo, Republican running for Hillsborough County Sheriff in New Hampshire:
Sheriff candidate says he wouldn't reject deadly force to stop abortionsWell, now. Isn't that special.
MANCHESTER, N.H. — A Republican candidate for Hillsborough County Sheriff said Wednesday that he believes elective abortions are unlawful and he wouldn't reject the use of deadly force to stop them.
Frank Szabo said that as sheriff, he would arrest any doctor performing elective or late-term abortions in his jurisdiction.
"There is a difference between legal and lawful," Szabo said.
When pressed about what he would do if he learned that a doctor was about to perform an elective abortion, Szabo replied he would do what it took to prevent that from happening.
"Absolutely," he said. "Well, I would hope that it wouldn't come to that, as with any situation where someone is in danger, but again, specifically talking about elective abortions and late-term abortions, that is an act that needs to be stopped."
Szabo said he would arrest doctors who perform elective or late-term abortions and bring them to the county attorney to prosecute, even if the doctors' actions were allowed under state law.Oh. I see.
So, does Mr. Szabo have any actual knowledge of the law, the Constitution of either New Hampshire or the United States, or, for that matter, the most basic understanding of actual law enforcement procedure or protocol?
Szabo said he doesn't have any background in law enforcement, but he said his business background gives him the experience to run for the position of sheriff.Ah, of course. He has BUSINESS experience. Yup, BUSINESS EXPERIENCE is all it takes to know how to run a county sheriff department. Or, presumably, to fly fighter jets. Or perform surgery.
As long as you have BUSINESS EXPERIENCE, apparently you can perform any job on the planet.
Minor update: Just one thing to note. I'm a freelance website developer. Have been for 13 years now (which, actually, is kind of an eternity by web standards, I suppose...). By the Republican Party's standards, since I have "at least 13 years of business experience" I guess that makes me qualified to run for President...
