The "heroes" of the conservative movement have been either ignorant (Bachmann, W, Gohmert, the entire Palin clan), ignorant and bigoted (Ann Coulter,Rick Santorum, Rush.. err, how much time you got?), or ignorant, bigoted, and a serial pedophile (Ted Nugent).
Rational, healthy people shun them. Yet they have all been featured on conservative talk shows, show up as headliners for conservative events, and are sought after for political endorsements. (Cripes, Romney even altered his gun stance to secure Ted's nod.)
The new flavor of the month is Phil Robertson. An oligarch that dresses like a bedraggled southern stereotype and appeals to the useful, idiot teabaggers to do their corporate master's bidding. On top of it, he is a proud homophobe who also spouted that blacks were better off when they knew their place.
Now if only he could be misogynistic with a hint of perversion, we'd have a new King of Wingnuttia. Not an out-and-out pedophile like Nugent, but something juuuust creepy enough to give a nod to the sexual deviants.
“Look, you wait ‘til they get to be twenty years-old and the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they’re about fifteen or sixteen and they’ll pick your ducks.”(Link if embed no work)
The conservative "Christian" crowd, (it was to a Ministry in Georgia), ate this up.
But you are right Phil, its the "gays" who are the deviants, you sick F&*&...
