I know that this was kinda on Slog yesterday... Eli posted the video of Antioch Bible Church Pastor Ken Hutcherson testifying before the state's House Judiciary Committee over here.

But a transcript from the beginning of Hutcherson's speech deserves its own post—truly inspired: "I was born and raised in Alabama, where blacks and whites didn't get along very well, and I tried to be one of the main reasons they didn't," says Hutcherson. "I was very discriminatory towards whites. The only reason I played football was so I could hurt white people legally."

A paragon of persuasive rhetoric.
