Oh, my lord.

Welcome to the New Normal, where hicks call for investigations into art exhibitions.  Representative Jack Kingston, Republican of Savannah, people:

Direct quote: “Yew know what, ah support freedom of expression, ah support art, and if it is prahvately funded, and they wanna show a picture of Jesus bein’ eaten by ants, and they think at Christmas, tahme that that’s the proper thing to do, then they should do it on their own nickel, not on taxpayer nickel. This is in a public buildin’ with public staff, public taxpayers are subsidizin’ this exhibit, so to say that it’s privately funded is a joke.”

Uh. People in Georgia elected this man to Do Things. How sad.
