Rapert's brain

In the wake of the May 9 ruling by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza overturning Arkansas's ban on gay marriage, Rev. Sen. Jason Rapert, Republican of Bigelow, has gone on a multiday tantrum, posting a screed on his Facebook page in which he said gays "have no right to redefine marriage and dilute the bedrock principle of families in our country," and later posting that Piazza's "decision was reckless and has thrown Arkansas into an uproar." Funny, we didn't see much uproar at the Pulaski County courthouse on Monday, unless you count a lot of kissing and whooping for joy. With Rapert's outrage meter pushing into the red zone over gay marriage, we thought we'd take this opportunity to look under his hood and try to puzzle out what makes him tick.
