"He's a bro with no ho."—Republican US Senator from Illinois Mark Kirk, caught on an open mic during a Senate Appropriations Committee markup discussing his colleague Senator Lindsey Graham's "rotating first lady" comment.

If you guessed that Senator Kirk's office defended this horseshit by saying he was just "joking around with his colleagues," give yourself eleventy million points.

It continues to be a real mystery why Republicans aren't connecting with a majority of female voters.
