Perhaps one reason the GOP is shrinking

They are bone-headed and batshit insane. For example, from ThinkProgress’s Matt Corley:

Last week, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) named William Smith as the chief counsel for the GOP on the Senate Judiciary Committee. David Ingram of Legal Times reports today that Smith recently compared support for same-sex marriage to support for pedophilia. In a blog post that has now been taken down, Smith responded to former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt’s speech to the Log Cabin Republicans by writing that he wondered “if next week Schmidt will take his close minded stump speech to a NAMBLA meeting. For those unfamiliar with NAMBLA, the acronym is for North American Man Boy Love Association.” Smith also compared same-sex marriage to bestiality. Neither he nor Sessions responded to Legal Times.

The inability to grasp the difference between homosexuality and pedophilia is, so far as I can tell, typical of the GOP and quite repulsive.

And of course they didn’t respond. What can they say?
