Picture: Elizabeth Dole is some kind of JokerBut please don’t call her Shirley…

Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) must have a fairly macabre sense of humor, seek because she tried to name an AIDS funding bill after her late gay-hating GOP colleague Jesse Helms.

Helms — a spiteful old bastard whose legacy is tarnished by a lifetime of bigotry — opposed AIDS prevention efforts and research, ensuring that as many people as possible would die from what he considered a gay disease.

The bill, which is aimed at preventing the spread of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Africa, is currently named after Tom Lantos (D-CA) and Henry Hyde (R-IL) — both deceased.
