Who's the biggest threat?

You would think that anyone could see that the biggest threat facing this country today is the economic situation and Congress's cowardly, craven, power-lusting response to it.

You would think that would be the prime pre-occupation of every legislator in the country right now.

Right?

Wrong.

Apparently some legislators seek a distraction to deflect the public's attention away from their culpability in the current situation. Witness Utah state senator Chris Buttars. According to an email I received this morning from the Human Rights Campaign, senator Buttars has caught the Kern disease, and seems to have nothing better to do in this time of crisis than inform his fellow legislators and constituents that the greatest threat this country faces today is . . .

Homosexuality.

Sigh.

HRC has posted a video of Buttars on YouTube.

Update - 6pm, Feb 20th: Buttars has been reprimanded by the Utah State Senate.

  1. Chris should resign.

    Once the whole enchilada becomes available for public consumption, the country is gonna be sickened by his camera drunk performance.

    The documentary is coming out in July.

    It's one thing if Chris were to appear in that film in the role of a *former* Utah senator.

    It's another thing entirely if the audience were to be treated to the spectacle of a sitting state senator spewing this bile.

    The choice of reactions is up to the Utah legislature.

    July's audience will either think "good for Utah for cutting this crank loose" or they'll think "only in Utah can a jerk like this keep his job."

    It's one or the other.

    And if it's the latter, it's not like Chris is going to keep his job after July anyway.

    Show a little humility and bow out now, or suffer utter humiliation later.

    It's up to you, Chris.
