Here, horsey horsey horsey!

I'm overdue in posting this, but we have yet another right-wing activist with a kinky past. This time bestiality (among other things). I grew up in rural Missouri-- plenty of farm animals around. And I can say with all honesty that it never occurred to me to take an animal as a lover. Apparently that statement will only shock conservatives.

From Neal Horsley's appearance on Hannity & Colmes, where he was being questioned about posting doctors' names online-- doctors who perform abortions. One has since been murdered. (I took this from Digby's blog, link above.)

At first, Horsley laughed and said, "Just because it's printed in the media, people jump to believe it."

"Is it true?" Colmes asked.

"Hey, Alan, if you want to accuse me of having sex when I was a fool, I did everything that crossed my mind that looked like I..."

AC: "You had sex with animals?"

NH: "Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule."

AC: "I'm not so sure that that is so."

NH: "You didn't grow up on a farm in Georgia, did you?"

AC: "Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia has a mule as a girlfriend?"

NH: It has historically been the case. You people are so far removed from the reality... Welcome to domestic life on the farm..."

Colmes said he thought there were a lot of people in the audience who grew up on farms, are living on farms now, raising kids on farms and "and I don't think they are dating Elsie right now. You know what I'm saying?"

Horsley said, "You experiment with anything that moves when you are growing up sexually. You're naive. You know better than that... If it's warm and it's damp and it vibrates you might in fact have sex with it."
