So, this is 2012, huh? Week One report:
So, to recap, this is what’s happened in 2012 this first week:
SOPA is, for some reason, still being taken seriously by some people; mostly people who have never seen or used the Internet. The rest of us are starting to twitch uncomfortably every time a Spanish-speaking person mentions soup.
Not content with wanting to destroy the Internet, the greatest invention in communication since the printing press, American nominee for the presidency Rick Santorum wants to impose Bible Law on everybody in the U.S. You know, like Sharia, and just as stupid; only white.
Seriously. Would you vote for this asshole?
Because, apparently, going for a double standard just doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s got to be a double standard of such tremendous proportions that it blows people’s minds when they hear about it.
Also, he wants to ban porn.
Really, who takes these people seriously? I mean, I can certainly follow the hilarity of watching certifiable lunatics make ludicrous claims — that’s what trash tv and reality shows are for — but once they start diddling with legislation, I say fun’s over and it’s time to get back in the straitjacket, Santorum. Hey, his name almost sounds like “sanitarium”! Which is good, because that’s where he belongs.
