    what the heck is a “genital drive?”

    Is it like a hard drive. If so, I need to go to Best Buy cause mine is broken.

    a. mcewen, it’s a floppy drive. Eight incher.

    You made my day. I thought all the “nutcakes” (Senator Orrin Hatch’s label for us) and our very chronic foot-in-mouth diseased Representative Buttars get all Utahns labeled as weird.

    I pretty impressed with the interviewer.

    Way too often, when confronted with this sort of rambling incoherence, the press allows it to slide and changes the topic.

    Good for the Tucson Citizen. Loons who run for office should be given ample opportunity to “clarify” their views.

    Sweeney is — how shall we say it? — a well-known local “character.” I suspect the reporters at the Citizen wanted to keep him talking just to see what gems would fall out.

    Ok, my head now hurts from reading that.

    Unfortunately that makes Minnesota’s Michelle Bachmann look like a rocket scientist and that is scary indeed. You have my sympathies.

    Does anyone know if the interview is covered by copyright ?
    It could make a terific stand-up comedy routine

    He asked me to sign a petition a few weeks ago. I said, “Are you Joe Sweeney?” And he said yes, and I said, “You are a nut case!” and walked off.

    Truly, he is a nutcase.

    Kirk: Sulu, go to genital speed!

    Scotty: I’m sorry cap’n but the genital drive, I think she’s shot her load, sir.

    Kirk: Scotty, I need more power.

    Scotty: Aie, I think I can give you three minutes tops, cap’n.

    Kirk: Steady as she goes!

    … Or at least that how I imagined it. ;-)

    The first time I met Sweeney was back in 1973, when he was trying to start an argument at the Newman Center on the U of A campus. Physically, he hasn’t changed much since then, except for some wrinkles and mentally there also has not been much improvement. He’s a pathological hatemonger, and likes to be among hatemongers, the dumber the better. After being around Sweeney occasionally when he’s handing out leaflets downtown, I go home to my old dog and realize that the dog is smarter and kinder by a substantial amount, and also knows how to keep his genital drive under control. BTW, I strongly suspect that Sweeney is a virgin and has little knowledge of what goes on South of the border, literally or figuratively.
