"Sterilize bad parents." Here's another guy who needs his political career terminated ASAP. For the benefit of Google and Technorati and the pro-life oppo researchers who will use them, that would be Larry Shirley, of the Charleston SC City Council.

The questions is, is Mr. Shirley just an isolated git, or is there a movement here that we should be aware of?

Nice tourist-dependent destinations they've got down there in Charleston. 'Be a shame if other local politicians were to fail to express disgust over Shirley's remarks right away.

(And don't try "Shirley you jest," 'cause it's been done.)
