J.D. Hayworth is the ex-congressman jerk who, in his fight against Sen. John McCain for his U.S. Senate seat, thought branding Massachusetts’ same-sex marriage laws as the gateway drug to man-horse marriage would be a wise call. Now which is more stupid: Making that comment, or thinking showing up on Rachel Maddow to discuss it would be a good idea?
In the interview, they squabble over the phrase “establishment of intimacy,” a phrase the Massachusetts Supreme Court used — according to Hayes. Not according to Maddow. Either way, Hayworth is dragging the phrase to the extreme, about how horse owners might feel intimacy towards their horses, and how, under some ludicrous interpretation of the law, man and equestrian animals will get hitched.
Hayworth calls the difference in their reading of the law a “disagreement about that,” which is our new way of branding “factual inaccuracies.” Yahoo!
