Funny, in a bad sort of way

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the following story, reported by Barton Gellman in the Washington Post yesterday. This is a story that should be in the Onion, but it is all too true. Apparently, possible Al-Qaeda agents or sleeper cells in America are no longer a threat the American public . The FBI can focus on the real problems threat facing Americans: adults looking at naked pictures. The religious fundamentalists who jointly control the Bush administration (in conjunction with the major corporations) are getting almost everything they want. First, no federal funding for stem cell research. Next, "intelligent design," a.k.a. creationist nonsense, taught in high school science classes. Now, a war on the evil of pornography. What's next, mandatory school prayer?

Notice Gellman points out this is a "top priority" of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, in my opinion, the next Supreme Court Justice. (If you're curious, I'm also picking the Colts and Panthers in the Super Bowl). Before you lose respect for Gonzales, though, remember one important thing about him: he is the son of immigrants! (I personally wouldn't resort to this irrelevant argument, but Bill O'Reilly felt it necessary to mention this fact when supporting Gonzales for the position of Attorney General). Please don't ask me why being the son of immigrants qualifies one to be Attorney General; direct your questions to

One would think there would be much more important things to worry about than adults looking at naked adults.

I'm just glad they finally uncovered the breasts of lady justice at the DoJ.

Our priorities are messed up. But hey, W will save us all.

My dad is the son of an immigrant, I wonder if he would qualify.
