    How about the unchaste men who impregnated the teachers? The hypocrisy of these right wingers who claim want to keep the government out of people’s lives, yet are willing to deny civil rights to pregnant women and gays. I can’t wait for his sex scandal.


    [...] says they too should be banned from teaching in public schools. Now he’s speaking out against “unchaste” [...]

    I wonder what DeMented would say about the school in GA I worked at when I retired that had several lesbian and gay teachers who were really good at their jobs. None of these individuals were EVER accused of any type of sexual impropriety toward the students. All of the teachers that lost their jobs because of sexual improprieties involving students were young, white males.

    I see that DeMented has totally bought into the Reconstructionist/Dominionist form of Christianity. He believes in holding women responsible for their actions, but not the men. He said nothing about men sleeping with their girlfriends being forced to leave their jobs. I feel sorry for his daughters, if he has any, because they’ll feel compelled to sneak around behind his back and do the things they want to do.

    I’m glad he clarified his statement that “openly homosexual” people shouldn’t be teaching. All those married men teachers soliciting on craigs list for a BJ from a young male teen should be safe.

    And DeMint, they’re whispering to you to keep on going because every loves to see a clown.

    Chances are good that the next sex scandal we hear about that involves a member of Congress will also have the name DeMint attached to it. Isn’t it the ones who are “sinning” behind closed doors that are always criticizing what they see as “sins” of other people but never themselves??

    As others have said, DeMint brings up single women who are teaching that are having sex but never says a word about single male teachers. Or is he one of those neanderthals that believe men have urges that must be satisfied while women must wait for marriage. Who the hell do they think they are satisfying themselves with, if not other single women?

    I’m so sick of this Tea Party nonsense. They scream about wanting smaller government but never say a word about government intruding into women’s lives and controlling their bodies. That doesn’t sound like small government to me.

    DeMint is riding a temporary wave of popularity but if less than 50% of their candidates get elected, he’ll be brought back to earth quickly. In all honesty, I hope none of these wingnuts get elected. They will NEVER work with people with who they don’t agree to try to reach a compromise. If that is their attitude going in, then they should not apply for the job. We’ve had a congress for two years almost where one side refuses to work with the other and made no attempt to hide this fact when President Obama was elected. Yet, they still collect their paycheck and their government benefits, including healthcare. When it comes to healthcare, DeMint would be wise to remember, he may consider it a privilege and if so, we have every right to take it away from him and all the other multi-millionaires in Congress that could easily afford to fund their own health care insurance. In fact, we should do so, this way they can see just how “easy” and “inexpensive” it is to find insurance with a pre-existing condition.

    It’s funny how these right wing nutters who want less government suddenly want the government in our bedrooms — they make a mockery of themselves. Who wants to take bets on how long it will be before this jerk is caught with his pants down and some male Republic intern servicing him?
