Just in case you thought I was joking

Talking Points Memo

Democrats are calling on New Hampshire State Rep. Alfred Baldasaro (R) to resign over his remarks that the state "sold" children for $10,000 each when "they said that homosexual couples, not married, can adopt."

but wait - there's more!

He elaborated with some choice metaphors:

So because I disagree on something that's pushed down my throat, I'm supposed to roll over because, representative, you think it's normal? I'm sorry you got the wrong person.

Then things got really bad: "I wanted to make sure everyone understood here, that this legislature sold the rights of $10,000 per kid under title four, when they said that homosexual couples, not married, can adopt."

And even more - there's video! The first guy you see is Rep. David Bates, who is in favor of putting slavery and interracial marriage to a public vote. Crazy Al kicks in at about the 20 second mark:

You can hear him talk about how his constituents didn't even know that marriage bill had passed - as if that were somehow the fault of the legislature. What he's really saying is that his constituents are not very bright - and since he's in his second term, that may well be true.

He did not introduce himself as "Vinny". He must be named Vinny, or as least, Guido or perhaps Guiseppe. Oh I must stop, I'm sterotyping. Didn't he just do that? Where am I? What day is it?
