    Chuck Schumer: Moron [Jonah Goldberg]

    I'm sorry, this may be the single dumbest thing I've heard from a politician since George Pataki said that his hate crimes legislation could have prevented the Holocaust:

    “The very same people who don’t want the Fairness Doctrine want the FCC [Federal Communications Commission] to limit pornography on the air. I am for that… But you can’t say government hands off in one area to a commercial enterprise but you are allowed to intervene in another. That’s not consistent.”

    Really? So political speech and hardcore pornography: the founders saw no difference between these things? Or forget the founders, since Schumer and Co. usually do. Does Chuck Schumer honestly think the two are comparable? That the state has the same interest in regulating porn as it does in regulating political speech?

    Censoring donkey-human porn from public airwaves is not the same as censoring criticism of someone's tax plan. My God, what is wrong with these people?

    Clarification: I did not mean to single-out porn with Democratic mascots only (e.g. donkeys), so in fairness I should note that I also am opposed to unfettered broadcasts of elephant-human porn as well.

    To Dims and libs, free speech by conservatives is indecent.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
