Bobo brooks: "outlaw IMing after 10 p.m"

* on lehrer:
"DAVID BROOKS: Well, like I say, so far, I'm sort of with Mark on the seriousness of (Masturgate). So far, there's no evidence of it, if you look at the key races. As I say, there's no movement.

Nonetheless, I do think, when you look at it and you just go around and talk to people, you do find this intense alarm. This country is filled with people -- including myself -- whose kids are on IM all hours of the night. You have no idea what's going on, what they're saying.

I often say to candidates, "You know, if you go out in the country and you say, 'I will outlaw IMing after 10 p.m., you will win. I don't care what else you stand for; you will get parents supporting you." Because people, they've built this shell for themselves, their home and their family, but things are coming in outside the shell -- IM, cable TV, all this other stuff -- that they're really worried about."

(Masturgate)

How many goddammed names are there for this scandal, now? Can we all just agree on one and get on with the investigations and indictments, already?

"You know, if you go out in the country and you say, 'I will outlaw IMing after 10 p.m., you will win.

What fucking planet is this guy from? Or maybe I should say, what fucking century? That is far-and-away the most blatantly clueless thing I've read in a looooooong time. Stupid prick probably thinks it can be done by sticking a plug in one of Stevens' tubes...
