Everyone Knows, It's Buttars!

So I was reading this article about right-wing Utah State Senator Chris Buttars, the man who sponsors most of Utah's fringe legislation, like the ban on gay marriage, attempts to ban gay-straight alliances, attempts to squash the teaching of evolution, etc. Here's one delightful quote for all you Theo-cons out there:

Everyone Knows, It's Butters!

Like the good Senator, Butters from South Park also considers himself a "Moral Crusader". I wonder if the Professor Chaos outfit comes in a 52 long:
