Douchebag of the Week: Rep. Todd Tiahrt

Words fail me.

Rep. Todd Tiarht (R-KS): If you think of it in human terms, there is a financial incentive that would be put in place, paid for by tax dollars, that would encourage…single parents, living below the poverty level, to have the opportunity for a free abortion. If you take that scenario and apply it to many of the great minds we have today, who would we have been deprived of? Our President grew up in those similar circumstances. If that financial incentive was in place, is it possible that his mother might have taken advantage of it? Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice, if those circumstances were in place, is it possible that we’d have been denied his great mind?
Not only does he fail to realize that President Obama's mother wasn't a single mother while she was pregnant, apparently Rep. Tiahrt thinks that only minorities get abortions. ...He also thinks Clarence Thomas is one of today's "great minds."

Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-Doucheberg): Douchebag of the Week.

Tiahrt just made the greatest argument for pro choice.If his mother had been pro choice,scumbags like him would never have been born to poison the world.
