J.D. Hayworth is a wack-a-doodle former Congressman from Arizona. He is also a right-wing radio host. Hayworth is running in the primary against former presidential contender, John McCain. It might have been an easy bet that anybody could beat McCain this go-around, considering that Republicans were always soft on their support for him, and blame him for our current state of Democratic rule.
But, Sarah Palin (R-Facebook) is stumping for McCain, so conservatives are pretty torn. But those same people who are so enamored with Palin are also nutty enough to embrace Hayworth. . .who is nutty indeed. Recently, he made a false claim about Massachusetts' gay rights law, and also implied that gay marriage could lead to equine matrimony. That's marriage to horses. Mmmmmkay. So you've got nutters who are very torn. Recently, Hayworth appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show, and was taken to task for his statements. Rather than put you through that interview, here instead is the aftermath.
