As if Elaine Donnelly wasn't enough comic relief, in comes the news that Sally Kern has been caught packing some heat in the Oklahoma State Capitol building.

"Anti-gay Okla. lawmaker caught with gun at Capitol" Seems Sally carries with her a loaded .380 semiautomatic handgun.

While you might think it's because of all those crazy gay people threatening her but she's been carrying a gun for much longer than the youtube video controversy.

When asked about her gun, she said she was an "outdoors girl" who had "done some shooting."

I'm not sure what a .380 semiautomatic handgun and the outdoors have in common.

Kern was not arrested, although this was the second time she's brought a loaded gun into the Capitol building.

Meanwhile, Donnelly was ridiculed by the Washington Post today in a piece, Sorry We Asked, Sorry You Told.

My favorite part was the "lesbian group assault" that Donnelly seemed fixated on happened in 1974. It was alleged- never proven. And it was the only one ever reported.

I think Elaine might have some fantasies going on that she can't get out of her head. Maybe she's kinda hoping a group of lesbians will show up at her door.

You gotta wonder when someone is so passionately against "women gazing at another woman's breasts." What does she dream about at night?

I might send her a thank you note. Her testimony was so damaging to her cause we might just see an end to Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

I thought the same thing, Sara. Donnelly did so much damage to the fundie argument that you would have thought our community put her up...

Waymon, Sara, we did, but no one is supposed to know! She has been our big LESBIAN beard the whole time! Shhhhh!

Yeah, Donnelly definitely didn't help her cause any.

But Kern taking a pistol to the Statehouse isn't surprising. Indiana lawmakers are allowed to pack heat into the Statehouse too. One certain closet case is known for being ready to "defend himself from homosexual activists." I think he just means his ex.
