10 dumbest things Republicans said last month
1. "When a physician removes a child from a woman, that is the largest organ in a body. That's a big thing. That's a big surgery. You don't have any other organs in your body that are bigger than that."
—Alabama state Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin (R), defending her sweeping anti-abortion bill.
2. "They are going to cull the herd, so that instead of having billions, we'll only have hundreds of millions of human beings on the face of the planet."
—Alan Keyes, warning what's behind President Obama's gun control proposal.
3. "Some people could make the argument that a lot of people like being in abusive relationships. It's a love-hate relationship. It's very, very common for people to stick around with somebody they love who also abuses him or her."
—New Hampshire state Rep. Mark Warden (R), during a debate on a bill to reduce the penalty for simple assault.

...as an “abuse of taxpayer dollars” that “does more to promote a radical agenda than it does to help women.” from an Email written by Phyllis Shoefly on the VAWA.
I am sure there are a lot more horrendous and stupid things out there that the Republicans said this week alone. They could fill volumes with their horrendous quotes. Their stupidity is only dwarfed by their sheer meaness.
