More Than One Dick in the GOP

Sheesh. I thought Richard Riordan was supposed to be a moderate Thug. This exchange is said to have been caught on tape by a local teevee station in Santa Barbara:

In a videotaped exchange at the city's central library on Thursday, a girl asked [California State Education Secretary Richard] Riordan if he knew that her name meant "Egyptian goddess."

Riordan, who apparently believed he'd been asked what her name meant, replied, "It means stupid dirty girl."
