Add Republican Bob Marshall to the GALL list

ALTHOUGH THE COMPETITION among the half-wits for the Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) award grows exponentially each day, there can be no more deserving honoree than Republican Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall who insisted that women who have had abortions are punished by God by giving birth to children with disabilities. Oh, let him say it in his own words, and be done with it:
"The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children. In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There's a special punishment Christians would suggest."
And where did folks like Marshall who were born without a brain go wrong with God?

I guess that explains Trig Palin.

Using the Christian bible to explain natural events leads to conclusions like the three decker universe (heaven, earth, hell) and a flat earth. Bob Marshall fits in. And where did Marshall go wrong, you ask? When he opened his mouth.
