Anchorage Gay Rights InitiativeJust when you thought they couldn’t get any more cartoon-villain nasty, Alaska republican legislators laughed, literally laughed, at the very idea of passing a civil unions bill to give some measure of equality to LGBT couples in the state. As reports:

Alaska’s Republican-led House Majority Caucus really gave had themselves a good laugh on Friday, when Mark Miller from the Juneau Empire asked if their upcoming initiatives include civil unions or domestic partnerships to same-sex couples.

No, House Leader Lance Pruitt said after overcoming his giggles, of course they have no such plans. Civil unions are an issue Pruitt and company wouldn’t deign discuss, and it’s laughable to even suggest they would debate things that “happen in people’s bedrooms.”

Could these guys be any more tone-deaf?
