Pam's House Blend has a very outrageous post on Smack-Daddy Dobson and his charges that Gay Marriage will lead to sex with donkeys....

I find his antics humorous in the extreme, considering the following from this month's HARPERS:

Number of U.S. states where bestiality is legal: 20
WTF??? 20??? Which states??

Want to harbor a guess that the states where it is legal are somewhat tinged with wingnuttery and red?

Well, most are:

Bestiality is legal (or at least not expressly outlawed) in these U.S. states:
