Congratulations to GOP State Legislator Calvin Hill of Georgia who won his Republican merit badge for hypocrisy. Last Year, Hill led a movement in the state to prevent public universities from teaching sexual health and gay history classes claiming, “Our public colleges are not the place for our young adults and future leaders to experiment and experience these types of sexually explicit behavior.” Has Mr. Hill ever been to a college?! Well, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, even though Mr. Hill has a problem with “future leaders” experiencing sexually explicit behavior, he has no problem with current leaders, like himself, making money off of it. Yes, it turns out that Mr. Hill is the CFO of a company that sells sex gadgets and other sexual paraphernalia. Gila Distributing sells everything from “phallic” stress relievers to gay pride lapel pins. Is this is a new requirement for all Republican politicians now a days – launch a public crusade against something that is an integral part of your private life? Paging toe tapper Larry Craig…Paging serial adulterer Newt Gingrich, and hooker customer David Vitter.
The Republican merit badge for hypocrisy...
