Colorado State Sen. Dave Schultheis: Blithering, Disgusting Idiot

I have several friends in Colorado who I really like a lot, and I don’t think any of them are Republicans. Which is probably just as well, because I feel comforted in knowing none of them have voted for morons like Republican Colorado Springs State Sen. Dave Schultheis, who recently opposed a bill that would require pregnant women to undergo AIDS testing (unless they opt out) in order to prevent the virus from passing to their children because “[HIV] stems from sexual promiscuity for the most part, and I just can’t go there.” Putting aside Schultheis’ obnoxious co-opting of the equally obnoxious ‘90s catchphrase “don’t go there”, is this guy really an elected official? This is the kind of statement one would expect from a South Park parody or a malfunctioning android just before it shits battery fluid all over itself and collapses in a coma. He elaborated: "We do things continually to remove the consequences of poor behavior, unacceptable behavior, quite frankly. I'm not convinced that part of the role of government should be to protect individuals from the negative consequences of their actions." Yes, we all know that AIDS isn’t only a side-effect of sexual promiscuity, but that’s beside the point. Even if Slutty McWhorebag caught HIV by fucking random puddles of blood in Denver back alleys (too graphic?), that doesn’t change the fact that testing only protects her future child. And lest you think that Schultheis’ penchant for baby killing is simply a consistent extension of his other moronic opinions, you should also know that he’s pro-life. Here’s to family values! More sordid details here.
