The rotten image of the suburban hootchie ma — and by ma, I mean “Hummer Mom” as the lads called her in Livermore — has reached its apotheosis, if you will, in the tawdry and torrid tale of Christine Shreeve Hubbs.

The hard-core homophobes in the House GOP caucus have revealed themselves, and they are a sorry lot indeed. These are the people American history books will cast into the dustbin: bigots, haters, the sorry folks who see civil rights as a zero-sum game. If you get your civil rights, I lose mine.
