From the crazy part of Minnesota

Minnesota State Representative Tom Hackbarth is a Republican. How can you tell? By his deranged behavior.

A security guard at a St. Paul Planned Parenthood clinic called the cops last week after he spotted a Republican state lawmaker with a loaded gun in the parking lot. But the pol says he was only "checking on" his online girlfriend, who he thought may be on a date with another man -- a claim police have not been able to corroborate because the man did not have a phone number or address for the woman.

Because that's how married (but putatively in the midst of a divorce) Republicans look for their girlfriends: by hanging out in Planned Parenthood parking lots with a gun. It's totally charming that he didn't know her address and phone number, since they were just "online" friends — I guess he was just bringin' the real by stalking her with a gun.

I am really amused by his disclaimer.

"I was not a jealous boyfriend," he said. "I was just trying to check up on her. It's totally a misunderstanding."

Yeah. Just checking. With a gun. That's how we all monitor our wimmin.

Are you surprised that his district overlaps with Michele Bachmann's?
