Today in F*%#*#g Stupid: Lesbian Couple Kicked Out of San Francisco Museum for Holding Hands

As Ron White says, "You can't fix stupid," but as I say, you sure can marvel at stupid, which exceeds terrorism and the cratering economy as the most grave national problem.

Here's a story about museum rent-a-cop guard kicking a lesbian couple out of the Contemporary Jewish Museum for holding hands. The exhibit they were there for was, get this, one on the relationships and lifestyle of Gertrude Stein.

The guard "told them they couldn't hold hands in the museum" and told them to leave when they declined to follow his orders, a witness told the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper.

Let's guess that the couple is still holding hands today, but the guard is not holding a job. (The local paper, natch, failed to ask whether the latter was the case).

ER -- the article indicates a security guard, who undoubtedly was homo neanderthal, or homo teapartius, harrassed the couple, and the museum responded appropriately. No indication the couple was kicked out.

By gum, I'm going to go to that security guard and give him a deep French kiss.
