I'm just making myself more depressed. Media Matters has posted its Most Outrageous Statements of 2005. My favorite: Focus on the Family founder and chairman James C. Dobson: Same-sex marriage would lead to "marriage between daddies and little girls ... between a man and his donkey." What's your favorite?
