Dumb Things Guys Say: Ghost of Candidates Past

Dumb Things Guys Say #19

Right now we're researching some upcoming blog entries on the election, and we've been reminded just how completely batshit crazy some of the candidates were in the last few elections.

Here's a real gem from Alan Keyes:

KEYES [to McCain]: What you would say if your daughter was ever in a position where she might need an abortion? You answered [earlier today] that the choice would be up to her and then that you’d have a family conference. That displayed a profound lack of understanding of the basic issue of principle involved in abortion. After all, if your daughter said she was contemplating killing her grandmother for the inheritance, you wouldn’t say, “Let’s have a family conference.” You’d look at her and say “Just Say No,“ because that is morally wrong. It is God’s choice that that child is in the womb. And for us to usurp that choice in contradiction of our declaration of principles is just as wrong.

McCAIN: I am proud of my pro-life record in public life, and I will continue to maintain it. I will not draw my children into this discussion. As a leader of a pro-life party with a pro-life position, I will persuade young Americans [to] understand the importance of the preservation of the rights of the unborn.

We're going to go ahead and have our interns take Mr. Keyes off the invite list for the upcoming ESC Family Conference & Grandma Jamboree. And why does it have to be a grandma that gets killed? Why not grandpa, or some other relative? It's really very sexist and ageist of him. Also, "Just Say No"? I thought the daughter was contemplating killing grandma, not doing a couple of lines of coke with her.

But it's too bad that Keyes decided not to run this time around, because he and Mike Huckabee probably would have really hit if off.
