Rebecca Kleefisch likens gay couples to dogs

Don't Google 'santorum'

Republican candidate for Wisconsin lieutenant governor Rebecca Kleefisch discusses the State's domestic partnership registry with Jim Schneider of WVCY, Milwaukee's fundamentalist radio station:
At what point are we going to okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table? Or this, y'know, clock? Can we marry dogs? This is ridiculous. And biblically, again, I'm gonna go right back to my fundamental Christian beliefs . . .
Yes, and please stay there.

And biblically

What next? Are we to derive principles of human decency from Aesop's Fables? Popular Mechanics? WPRI Reports? Sears Catalog? Ridiculous!

Some people probably think they're already married to inanimate objects, at least during football season.

oh man, I'm gonna use this as a quintessential example of the slippery slope fallacy next time I teach critical thinking. http://onegoodmove.org/fallacy/ss.htm

Indeed. In fact, what she said immediately before the above is, "It's a slippery slope."
