    Default No constitutional protection for child pornographers!

    I saw a bit of CNN today, and they showed a bit of a speech McCain made today. He said:

    "There are no constitutional protections for people engaged in Internet child pornography," McCain said. "I will do everything in my power, including internationally, including an international agreement that will say we will act together to combat human trafficking, that is on the rise, as well as Internet child pornography."
    Most people will see this as being tough on child pornography, but what caught my attention was his disregard for the Constitution. If he sees it as 'just a piece of paper'...I can't vote for the guy.

    McCain, you're a fucking moron. Why did you have to win the Republican primary? Almost anyone else would have been better. Only Guiliani was a worse candidate.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    You do realize that McCain wouldn't have talked like this before, don't you? This is the kind of stuff that you will inevitably hear from the nominee, no matter who it is.

    And didn't Huckabee say that it's easier to change the constitution than the word of God? That sounds worse to me.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I totally agree.

    It's those stupid states where they hold the first primaries: if the republican party was sane, they'd actually care about the votes of their core constituency that doesn't live in these states. By the time they make it to most of these, all the pitiful choices should have been long-since rejected by the core voters...

    I think I'm just going to write myself in. I'd do a hell of a lot better job than McCain.

    Hopefully I win. I could use the money.

    Huckabee was worse than Hillary. For real. That man scares the living hell out of me, and not because he's a preacher.

    When you're getting criticized by both parties, threatened with impeachment, and having to sit through hellishly boring dinner parties in Beijing , don't forget the little people like us who put you there, mmm, 'kay?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    For $400,000/year, I'll endure all of that with a huge smile on my face.
