Goat Killer and partner relentlessly pound away at homosexuality*

Michigan's worst legislator continues at it.

The House Oversight, Reform and Ethics Committee held a public hearing on HB-4770 and HB-4771, both sponsored by Rep. Dave Agema, R-Grandville. The first bill prohibits state employers from offering health benefits to anyone who is not married to the employee. The latter bill reiterates that restriction for public schools, which would also include universities.

"The people voted in 2004, that for purposes of benefits, you have to be married," Agema said in an audio clip on the GOP House website. "So (HB-4770) basically says there are no same-sex unmarried benefits."

Well, actually, what voters chose in 2004 was to ban same-sex marriage, not to ban civil unions or even domestic partner benefits. But, what do you think you're going to get from a guy who thinks his constituents sent him to Lansing to become irate for being marked with an unexcused absence because he thought killing goats in Siberia was more important than voting on the state budget.

*--Headline not meant to imply that Tom McMillan is Dave Agema's lover, or that either man is in fact a self-loathing homosexual because each in their own way has made it an important portion of their political careers to deprive people of different sexual orientations access to certain things others take for granted as rights. It is very probable that one or both men are simply small-minded bigots who take great zeal in expressing that.

The best headline I've read this year
The disclaimer is pretty damn good too.

Double thumbs up
While I was writing this post, the "luggage bombs don't buzz, usually when luggage buzzes it's a dildo ... not to imply in this case that it's your dildo" scene from Fight Club kept going through my mind.
