DENIAL AIN'T JUST A SCREAM IN EWA: Just as Nixon felt the need to tell the country he was "not a crook" and 2010 Delaware US Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell just couldn't resist insisting that "I am not a witch," our own hate and fear-mongering homophobe-in-chief Hawai`i Republican State Rep. Bob McDermott (R, Ewa Beach-Iroquois Point) has declared "I'm not perverse," according to today's Honolulu Star Advertiser.

McDermott's infamous crusade against marriage equality last year continued into this year's legislative session when he attempted to whip up fellow Christian zealots into a orgasmic religious frenzy over the state's sex education curriculum called "Pono Choices."

The house refused to pass his amendment to a state DOE bill after "McDermott and others... complained that Pono Choices, a pilot sex education program for middle-schoolers, classifies the anus as genitalia and minimizes the dangers associated with anal sex" according to capitol reporter Derrick DePledge.

This led Rep. Della Au Belatti (D, Moiliili-Makiki-Tantalus), chairwoman of the House Health Committee to quip "'I think the level of specificity in this amendment that seems to focus perversely on these very specific sex acts misses the point' of teaching broad health education."

In response and in true American Knucklehead fashion, McDermott provided political satirists one of those "can't improve on that" moments.

DePledge writes that "McDermott jumped in to defend himself. 'My amendment, which is a reflection of me, is being called perverse," he said. "I'm not perverse; Pono Choices is perverse. That's what this is all about. I take that as an insult, and I ask the lady to withdraw it."

Forget the gauntlet slap. Perhaps if McDermott decides to run for re-election this fall he could do worse than to campaign walking the streets of Ewa Beach decked in leather and one of those ball-gags while bedecked in a statement-making back-door chastity belt.

After all, he couldn't possibly present a more ludicrous and preposterous image of himself than he has already.
