Sam Brownback: Slipping Logic a Roofie

“Rape is terrible. Rape is awful.” That’s from Kansas Senator and presidential hopeful Sam Brownback. He made that comment, according to this article in The Kansas City Star, while speaking at the National Catholic Men’s Conference in South Carolina.

So now we know where he stands on that whole rape thing. You can almost picture one solitary tear rolling down his cheek, like a telegenically stoic Native American watching truck drivers hurl Hefty bags full of their soiled adult diapers into the breakdown lane.

Instead of concluding with “Period,” followed by “Thank you and good night,” thereby leaving the audience with the impression that maybe Brownback himself had an orange rape whistle on his key chain, he continued his thought to its logical conclusion: “Is [rape] made any better by killing an innocent child? Does it solve the problem for the woman that’s been raped?”
