McCain challenger Hayworth says men could marry horses under Massachusetts ruling

Former Congressman J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) is not backing off his claim that a six-and-a-half-year-old same-sex marriage ruling in Massachusetts could conceivably pave the way for men marrying horses.

Hayworth had come under some fire — but more ridicule — for telling a conservative Orlando radio station on Sunday that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court had defined marriage so loosely in its November 2003 decision legalizing same-sex unions that it opened the door to human-steed nuptials.

The problem, however, was that no such provision seems to exist in the court’s decision.

    I watched this entire interview and although I am definitely not a fan ob MSNBC or Maddow I have to say she had JD squirming like a 5th grader caught cheating. JD here’s my advice to you; stop your campaign and save face while you still can. The people of Arizona do not want and do not need you, so I think it would be best if you just called it a day and packed everything up. You’re top consultant just left you because you couldn’t/wouldn’t pay up http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/senate-races/86973-hayworth-parts-ways-with-top-consultant… it’s just looking bad for you so please listen to the people of AZ this one time and QUIT WHILE YOU STILL CAN. That is all.

    The ignorant comment leads me to believe JD is out of money to even create an ad for himself. He must believe that negative publicity is at least publicity? Perhaps he needs to keep his big mouth shut and focus on policy. McCain has done a good job at fighting this administration, proving to us that we need him to continue fighting for our Nation’s security, fighting against the massive spending and fighting against the government run healthcare system. JD has proved nothing other then he is an ignorant jerk!

    No wonder why he was named one of the dumbest members of Congress when he served…. Really? Marrying an animal? I don’t think they’re at all similar.
