As someone who does this for living, I can tell you that these ads are pretty damn cool. Some are smarter than Al Gore.


“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Below are 25 elected officials who recently said one thing and did another. Yes, it goes on ALL the time in Washington - but in this case it involved a controversial, unpopular, and questionable decision on the part of our President to send tens of thousands MORE troops to Iraq - just in time, it turns out, to relieve all of the other quote/unquote "coalition" forces who announced this week they are pulling out.

This list of members of Congress is actually a list of cowards. Good, smart people who publicly criticized President Bush's escalation strategy prior to voting on it, but when it came time to make a decision decided to support it anyhow because that was the party line - essentially telling the American people that the solidarity of their political party is more important than a policy they don't agree with. They sure put the "I" in "Integrity" don't they?

Here are four fun examples:

Rep. Virginia Brown-Waite (R-FL): "It's too little, too late, and should have been done a year ago. ... I just get a feeling our country is being used."

Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM): "I am not a supporter of a surge to do for the Iraqis what the Iraqis will not do for themselves."

Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ): "I have little confidence that a surge in troop levels will change the situation in Iraq in any substantive fashion. It seems clear that the violence in Iraq is increasingly sectarian, and inserting more troops in this atmosphere is unlikely to improve the situation.

Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH): "I am skeptical that a surge of troops will bring an end to the escalation of violence and the insurgency in Iraq...I'm absolutely against the surge."

But when all of their party members jumped off the cliff of escalation, they jumped off with them.

Party over country.

Confucius say:

“To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice.”

Time to show these clowns the door.

Ex-NBA big-mouth Tim Hardonaway went on record last week as saying he wasn’t a big fan of homosexuals. This great bit from the Jimmy Kimmel show provides a fine response for Timmy.


This story is another example of our legal system run amok. All it takes is the application of a little common sense on someone’s part and this whole thing goes away. Instead, we have a bunch of fucking morons holding a “presumed” innocent lady to the letter of a law she in all likelihood did not break. Here's a summary:

A substitute teacher in Connecticut reportedly entered class one morning and saw a group of 7th graders all giggling while huddled around the PC on her desk. She investigated and discovered that there were a bunch of pornographic pop-up ads on the screen, which the inquisitive, hormonal pre-teens were busily inspecting with shock and awe. It used to be that the JC Penney catalog was all it took to give me a "pop-up" - today kids are just a click away from full blown intercourse on the world wide web.

The teacher frantically shuttled her curious kids away from the offensive images, but word of their informal sex education ultimately got out, and now she’s on the verge of spending the next 40 years in prison. Yes - 40 years behind bars for a bunch of pop-up ads she had no control over.

An analysis of the hard drive revealed the presence of malicious spyware, which we’ve all experienced at one time or another. As you are likely aware, you don't even have to be browsing "adult" sites to fall prey to some of these sneaky bastards. One minute you're browsing free shit on Craig's list and the next thing you know you've got The World's Horniest Singles flashing all over your screen. That's the danger of "clicking around."

Had the school protected its computers adequately, spyware-bearing cookies never would have found their way in. How can anyone possibly accuse this woman of negligently exposing minors to pornographic material? And what's with this talk of locking her up for 40 years? Child molesters spend less time in the clink. That's enough time for a REAL criminal to commit a crime, do time, get out, commit another crime, do more time, get out again and commit another crime! Who the hell is behind this madness?

Here’s a link to the whole story if you'd like to read all about it. I hear you may even be able to send a letter of support.
