I am in favor of... kiddie porn...

* kathleen: " I say we went to Iraq to piratize it."
funny.

* dan gillmor via rimone on the 'kiddie porn'/ web records story:
"we’re heading toward dictatorship in America, faster than I’d ever feared possible"
rimone has more, of course. i'm so outraged about this story that i can't even begin to describe it - but i already know that i'm being monitored by the NSA (hi folks! send pizza, pot) - so it doesnt incrementally affect me personally. i'll happily note that i refuse to add the
"Don’t misunderstand, I am in favor of nailing the kiddie porn people"
disclaimer - because if i have to add that, then the terrorists have won. i love terrorists and kiddie proners and flagburning, foriegn-language-national-anthem-singing-gay-marriagists.

* rimone called Blinky "the Texas Chainsaw Mendicant" - my drink hit my keyboard via my nose. and then i read the rest of her post. and i was scared. (i acutally wrote about this episode last month (in a different context)

* i havent been keeping up with the recent terror-raids around the anglo world. xymphora has the latest about the canadian raids. the latest UK raids seem equally laughable - except for that bit where the police shot a TERRORIST while he was reaching into his backpack walking down the stairs at 4am wondering what the fuck a bunch of strangers were doing in his house. we've seen this movie a thousand times before. the answer is always the same.

That's what I love about some of these conservative 'voices'. If you put it in, they'll ask why you felt you had to add it. If you don't, they're all over you.

Saw a similar bit at a Canadian Conservative's blog over a Canadian union's release of an Israel-critical press statement where they noted they'd also condemned Palestinian bombers. Hilarity ensued.

Bullshit, bluster, and blackballing.

Predictable.

about the bullshit kiddie porn thing, i don't think there's anything they've ever said, which resembles the truth.

oh, wait--in 2004 when i first read of the pre-election 'whatever it takes' (and the so-called bush pledges) i believed it, instantly and totally. |-(

"Hilarity ensued."
the other day i was trying to think who made that line famous - was it Drew at Fark?

apart from that - yeah - ther's no such as thing as the lobby
