How Long Before Gibbons Blames This On Alcoholism?

If you haven't already, you should read about Jim Gibbons, the Republican candidate for governor of Nevada who just tried to rape and kill someone he picked up in a Vegas bar.

As Wonkette writes, "Hilariously, Gibbons told the gal his marriage was 'boring' and his hotel was so close that they could 'crawl to it.' Gibbons’ wife, Dawn Gibbons, [was] running for the congressional seat he’s abandoning to run for governor."

I appreciate that in the victim's 911 call she turned to dark humor as a coping strategy.

911: Alright. He didn't seem like he was under the influence of anything other than alcohol correct?
MAZZEO: Um, probably power (laughing). ... But I don't know ...

I also giggled at this Wonkette comment:

Q: "Qualifications?"
A: "Rape, murder, arson, bigamy and rape".

Q: "You said rape twice?!"
A: "I like rape."
