D.J. Bettencourt, the NH House majority leader, took a recent break from cutting social services, lowering taxes on tobacco, and gutting unions (although, to be fair, they put off denying same-sex marriage for a bit) to express his opinion about Catholic Bishop John McCormack on Facebook:
Would the bishop like to discuss his history of protecting the 'vulnerable?' This man is a pedophile pimp who should have been led way from the State House in handcuffs with a raincoat over his head in disgrace. He has absolutely no moral authority to lecture anyone.The archdiocese claimed that Bettencourt was simply trying to distract attention from budget issues.
While it is not true that "my enemy's enemy is my friend", I must confess I am hoping both sides go down in a blaze of glory. Read the article; this one has some serious potential.
When heartless men have quarrels
Over who determines morals
Though it gets a bit exciting
Just to watch the bastards fighting
With their words
In this fight, there are no heroes
Just a nasty pair of zeroes
Though you'll probably abhor it,
If you've got the stomach for it...
Grab a snack.
