Real or The Onion: The Arkie running for Senate in Missouri

We've mentioned before
the candidacy of Arkansas native Courtland Sykes as a Republican challenger to U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. The latest from him sounds almost like performance art, except I think he's serious (and his campaign work looks like a tryout to be the next Dos Equis man.)

This from Raw Story:

In a statement posted to Facebook on Tuesday, Sykes said that he had been asked if he “supports women’s rights.”

“I want to come home to a home cooked dinner every night at six,” Sykes said, referring to demands he makes of his girlfriend. “One that she fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives.”

According to Sykes, feminists push an agenda that they “made up to suit their own nasty snake-filled heads.”

The candidate said that he hoped his daughters do not grow up to be “career obsessed banshees who forgo home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils who shriek from the top of a thousand tall buildings they are [SIC] think they could have leaped in a single bound — had men not been ‘suppressing them.’ It’s just nuts.”
