They’re baaaack!


The Justice Goddess’ boobs, I mean. Gonzales may be just as much an asshole as his predecessor John Ashcroft, but let’s give him credit where it’s due: the infamous curtain the sex-obsessed Ashtray insisted be used to cover up the “obscene” statue of the goddess of justice has been unceremoniously removed.

Remember, Ashcroft shortly before 911 wanted to cut money spent on terrorism prevention and increase spending on the real threat to our lives, pornography. A lot of us forget what the Bush administration’s priorities were pre-911, and that they ignored all the warnings and chose to focus instead on the stuff that really matters.

Could someone please explain exactly why Drudge is a ‘slimeball’? For years his site has been the first I went to in the morning (until all those bloody popups started freezing my computer) but he’s pretty damn tame for a slimeball (except to dog rapers and the like). I don’t see how providing links (he doesn’t write the stuff) from reputable sources is deserving of ‘slimeball’ status. He’s always labelled a Republican hatchetman, but I’m hardpressed to see that.
I’m not related to the guy; I’m only curious. If he was as bad as everyone says, why don’t I feel guilty reading him (I don’t have access to his radioshow).

Gonzales has a better last name.

In his confirmation hearing Gonzales said he would make obscenity prosecutions a focus of his tenure.

Why Drudge is a slimeball:

1. He ushered in the Swift Boat Liars and madfe them the centerpiece of his site for the entire campaign.

2. He and he alone bangewd the drum incessantly about a fake story that Kerry had an affair with an intern and was going to be forced to drop out of the race. Totally discredited.

3. He has done all he can to promote Ed Klein’s new sleaze book on Hillary Clinton, which claims Bill raped her and that’s how Chelsea was born. No proof, by the way. Even Hughh Hewitt and Peggy Noonan have condemned it as pure garbage.

4. Constantly ran unflattering photos of John Kerry throughout the campaign and feature them prominently. Wrote about Kerry’s expensive haircut as though it were far more important than the war in Iraq.

5. Like Limbaugh, his medium serves as a tool for the GOP. When he has hot news that makes the GOP look bad he does use it, but there is a laughably blatant bias against the left, and Charles Johnson and Michelle Maglalang adore him.

Interestingly, Gonzales is also behind a move to smother dirty-pix websites under mountains of bureaucratic record-keeping, to such an extent that many of them have been forced to shut down.

Among other things, the new regulations, which took effect last week, require all such content providers to post their *real* street addresses so that inspectors can examine the aforementioned mountains of paperwork at any time. This, of course, will also make it much easier for Christian vigilantes to target such businesses.

Gotta keep handing out goodies to their base….

Thanks for the succinct points. With all the loathing I hear directed towards him, I was just disappointed that his site is as innocuous as it is.

“This, of course, will also make it much easier for Christian vigilantes to target such businesses.”

Can anyone cite me a single example of “Christian vigilantes” attacking purveyors of on-line porn sites?

If there really were mobs of torch bearing “Christian vigilantes” ready to run amok, wouldn’t they have already attacked adult video shops or vendors of sex toys, whose addresses are already available in the Yellow Pages?

What the hell. Let’s not let the facts get in the way of Christian bashing.
