The Hill reported yesterday that South Dakota state Rep. Joel Dykstra (R) has officially entered the race for the Republican nomination to face Sen. Tim Johnson (D) in 2008. And who's Joel Dykstra? The DSCC offers this tidbit of news:
"I think 'rape and incest' is a buzzword. It's a bit of a throwaway line and not everybody who says that really understands what that means. How are you going to define that?” --
South Dakotastate Rep. Joel Dykstra ( ) on why the state legislature didn't include those exceptions in its abortion ban, April 20, 2006. R-Lincoln County
And here I thought "macaca" moments were supposed to come during the campaign, not before the campaign even starts.
Honestly, where does the GOP find these guys?
