It's almost as though they have a contest going on to see who can out-dumb the others, and the competition - as Anthony Weiner noted - is stiff.
Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen exchanged Twitter messages with a hot college chick in Texas, professing his affection. Like Anthony, he thought they were private, then quickly deleted them after finding they weren't. Not, of course, before others picked them up. Curse you, AlGore!
Not content with his other bans, New York City nanny Bloomberg is now going after salt - and styrofoam containers.
Bloomberg plans to use part of his Thursday State of the City address to push for a ban on Styrofoam food packaging. He also will call for initiatives that would increase the number of parking spaces for electric cars and begin recycling more plastics and food waste.
Ever notice how the Democrat answer to almost everything involves imposing a ban? One might almost think that they despise freedom. But speaking of bans, a state representative in Georgia - a Democratic, naturally - wants to impose a ban on what he terms "vulgar Photoshops".
Never mind the First Amendment; Earnest Smith has an answer for that:
He fulminated to Fox News: "No one has a right to make fun of anyone. It's not a First Amendment right."
If he gets his way, comedy will be a thing of the past. Jay Leno may have to go back to hawking snack foods - as long as he isn't funny.
Hey, aren't Democratics The Party Of Tolerance™?
