Nature vs. nurture vs. state issue

by Jeremy Hooper

Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate Joe Miller (R, Alaska) was a star of his Salina Central High School quiz team:

So one would think Joe would know that if a man answers "it's a states issue" to the question of whether or not he thinks homosexuality is a choice, that answer is much more likely to be met with a negative buzzer than an affirmative bell ring. But in an interview with modern-day quiz team moderator Rachel Maddow, Joe seems to have forgotten his training:

Oh Joe. You'll vote for an FMA because both votes and biological realities should be decided by the state? Huh?!
