OUR last post about Mark Souder, Creationist Congressman, the only member of Congress (so far) who has won your Curmudgeon’s coveted Buffoon Award, was here: 04 May Election Results. He won a contested primary, and was once again going to be the GOP candidate in the November general election. As we wrote then:
The competition for “Biggest Idiot in Congress” is ferocious. Every galaxy-class fool in the US seems to be there, fighting for the title. But Souder easily stands out from the rest as being especially idiotic. He won our Buffoon Award for saying: “I personally believe that there is no issue more important to our society than intelligent design.” See: Buffoon Award Winner — Mark Souder, Creationist Congressman.
Well, dear reader, sometimes the gods are kind. At the website of Fox News we read Indiana Rep. Mark Souder to Resign Amid Allegations of Affair With Staffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
Eight-term Indiana Rep. Mark Souder was announcing his resignation Tuesday after admitting to an affair with a female aide who worked in his district office.
Souder, a Republican, will will step down on Friday. He said in remarks obtained by Fox News that he “sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff.”
O the joy! Another creationist fool flames out. Let’s read on:
Elected as a family values conservative as part of the Republican revolution in 1994, Souder survived a tough re-election challenge in 2008 and survived a contested primary two weeks ago.
Family values! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
