Republicans Take the Lead in Bad Behavior

Republicans 2 Democrats 1. That's the current tally for bad legislative behavior this year.

You may not believe this latest installment of bad behavior.

The latest gaffe or "foot in the mouth" award goes to Republican house representative Larry Liston from Colorado Springs. On Wednesday, Rep. Liston called unmarried teen parents "sluts" at a caucus meeting.

Here's the story.

Chagrined, and to his credit, Rep. Liston apologized for his remarks. While Liston felt the weight of appropriate condemnation from his collegues, his greatest pain likely came from his wife- "she made it very clear that I could have said something far different and that was at 6:50 a.m."

Stay tuned.
