Hind of the Hour

Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact.

“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”

“My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.”  — RawStory

This is SO stoopid I wonder if it’s an Onion-like satire.  Although after listening to Todd Akin, the Einsteinian devotee on the House Science Space & Technology Committee, discuss his theory of spermicidal fallopian tubes activated by “legitimate rape,” I guess there’s no bottom.

(I like the “not completely, but virtually impossible” concept.  How does this work?  What does “virtually” mean here?  “Almost”?  Like the folks who say, “I was literally scared to death.”)

Fun fact:  These people control education budgets.

  1. Nobody says:

    I literally and virtually shit my pants when I read this.

  2. Ruh Roh says:

    Got it. AIDS came from the homosexual community after an airline pilot screwed a monkey.

    Yes, this is leadership material in today’s Republican party.

    Maybe you will remember the Democrat Representative from Georgia who said that the island of Guam was going to sink into the ocean if more people were to live in it? No, you wouldn’t. But if a Republican had said such a stupid thing you will.

      Who — You mean Hank Johnson? Actually what he worried about was the island tipping over if too much weight was put on one end of it. I suspect he watches a lot of teevee.

      That was over 2 years ago — if you need to go back that far to find a stupid remark from a ‘Crat, you’re not working hard enough.

      Even so, I bet Johnson isn’t dumb enough that he doesn’t know that AIDS can be contracted through heterosexual sex.

      BTW — (a) I’m not a Democrat and (2) I fully appreciate stoopid remarks regardless of party affiliation. I look forward to your approval when I ferret out particularly egregious howlers from the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, two of my faves.
