Quote of the Day

“That [stoning gay people to death] goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and Iím largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.”

Huh.

  1. I never said I would author legislation to put homosexuals to death, but I didnít have a problem with it.

    Once again, life imitates The Onion:

    Incineration of gays, Buchanan stressed, should be an issue for states to decide. “If the individual states, such as Alabama and Colorado, want to burn gays, be it at the stake or in their gay homes, that is their prerogative,” he said. “That is not a federal issue.”

  2. I think my favorite part of the quote in my post above is the “some parts” bit.

    Like “Well sure, if you wanna get all dogmatic about it, maybe stoning gay people to death isn’t technically libertarian – geez, those guys can be so uptight and philosophically rigid, amirit? Big tent, people.”

  3. Or, of course, the obvious implication that there are OTHER parts of libertarianism that are totally cool with stoning gay people to death. “Don’t tread on me, man!” – says not the gay guy being stoned to death apparently.
