The wacky world of politics.

I've been doing some campaign finance searches for a project I'm working on and have come across some very interesting PACs pushing some very interesting agenda items.

Government Is Not God Political Action Committee. Their website contains a bevy of important information for the right-wing and their candidate qestionnaire is fairly standard stuff, but includes one of the best disclaimers I have ever seen. And I quote: "You should assume that no national emergency exists when answering the following questions. We recognize in the event of a national disaster or war, questions of public policy must be viewed in other terms." So, I guess in time of war or natural disaster that allowing gays to adopt or marry would be just fine as would the teaching of sex education. Rock on! Aren't we at war?

From the Cyber Cast News Service, I learned that the real reason oil is so expensive is due to that commie Hugo Chavez, and that Gore's son pleading guilty to drug possession counts as important political news. I also love the fact that they use Chavez article to perpetuate the right-wing propoganda that blames ethanol production on rising food costs. I mean it must be that given that ethanol gets used in like .01% of vehicles on the road. It couldn't possibly be the rising energy prices (oil and gas) that heavily impacts agricutural production across the board. Silly, silly us.

I have to have a sense of humor about it given that this is actually my job. C'mon that is some funny funny stuff.
