Welcome to Big Time Small-Time Dicks, a regular column on The Slot that explores local politicians, small-town scandals, and everything else making life miserable on a local level. Know a small-time person who is a big time dick we should feature? Email us. Today: a very special Women’s March edition.
Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel was upset and deeply grossed out by the Women’s March on Washington D.C., which, unacceptably, featured women with “piercings, tattoos [and] body paintings” talking about birth control. Nauseating. But the Senator wasn’t alone: a great many male elected officials had similar, very special, very original responses to women’s marchers. Many of them were phrased in the form of jokes, and help to illustrate why politicians shouldn’t try their hands at comedy. Let’s just get all of these over with at once, shall we?
