Unintentional funny of the day

Now that I'm back from galavanting all around the eastern seaboard, I've had a chance to check in on the recent developments in Goshen. While I was cruising around catching up, this quote from an opponent of expanding the town's human rights ordinance to include sexual orientation and gender identity caught my eye.

"Why would the Goshen City Council enact an ordinance which could end up forcing business to hire male cross dressers or daycares to hire active bisexuals to care for children? It's a drastic change in public policy for Goshen and Elkhart County and the people deserve time to voice their opinion. I just hope that the Goshen City Council won't ramrod this through."

Okay, there's just too much funny in that one quote... "Male cross dressers?" Is it okay for women to wear pants or are those "female cross dressers?" "Active bisexuals" aren't okay? Does he realize that the Kinsey scale (it's part of that big bad scary science!) says that most humans are bisexual to some degree?

But the best part is that last sentence. "Ramrod." That's comedy gold. You can't make up stupid conservative quotes any better than that...
