Why I strongly dislike politicians

My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that. And so what you've got to do is you've got to curtail that type of behavior. They don't know any better.

Read this today in the "Verbatim" section of Time magazine from earlier this month. This makes me sick. I cannot comprehend the utter idiocy this man must possess to make a statement like this that compares a large portion of his states children to 'stray animals'. I don't curse often, but this one had my Broca's area fired up.

To be fair, I do not know what the context was. If anyone is able to defend him even in the smallest way, let me know. Although I might then start cursing at you. ;-)
