Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has dishonored herself, her party and the entire US House of Representatives.

In order to try to score a political point, she claimed that "we know" that the Mathew Shepard murder was not a hate crime.

She called it a "hoax." Moreover, she did so knowing full well that Judy Shepard â€" mother to a murdered son â€" was sitting in the gallery.

Others have claimed that Foxx was ignorant and stupid.

Surely Foxx is ignorant but that's not why she is the object of outrage.

The real issue is that Foxx simply didn't care and why should she? For roughly two hours, we listened to Republican after Republican spout lies and distortions about the hate crime bill and GLBT people.

For roughly two hours we endured their rhetoric from a "free fire zone" of hate.

For roughly two hours we were subjected to disparagement by the agents of the agents of intolerance.

Essentially, these "conservative" politicians are the paid employees of the Christian right in pursuit of their agenda of inequality.

Take away the evangelical money and some of these people would find themselves putting chocolate on cherries for a living.So no, it's not the stupidity of Ms.

Foxx that is so egregious; it's the arrogance.

Apparently a bunch of queers aren't important enough to Ms.

Foxx for her to get her facts straight.Foxx will probably do the political thing and apologize "if anyone was offended." This time, that's not even close to good enough.

This isn't some bimbo in a beauty pageant.
