Elizabeth Dole, who as we all know I find to be one of the most reprehensible people in the universe, has taken a break from being useless as a North Carolina Senator to attach a name that would be hilarious if it wasn't so infuriating to an HIV/AIDS relief bill going through the Senate. The name(for those who don't do the link clicking thing)? Jesse Helms.
This could only be more ironic if the relief was specifically for black, gay men. I don't know why people have been working so hard to obfuscate Helms' legacy of xenophobia rather than show it for what it was so we can learn from it and move forward, but this latest attempt from the worst senator since Jesse himself makes me want to throw up.
My only comfort is knowing that the king of the NC bigots would have dropped a brick in his pants if he knew his name was going to go on this thing.
