Brownback and Romney fight over who is the bigger jackhole
Not that there was much chance of either Brownback or Romney getting my vote in 2008, but this little dust-up seals it. Romney’s new ad:
I’m deeply troubled about the culture that surrounds our kids today… I’d like to see us clean up the water in which our kids are swimming. I’d like to keep pornography from coming up on their computers. I’d like to keep drugs off the street. I’d like to see less violence and sex on TV and in video games and in movies. If we get serious about this we can actually do a great deal to clean up the water in which our kids and grandkids are swimming.
Does the word “parenting,” or the concept of responsible parenting show up in this ad anywhere? No? Imagine that. Brownback’s idiotic “I can be a bigger nosy Nelly than you” response:
In a move rich with irony, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign released a new television advertisement decrying “the culture that surrounds our kids today,” despite the fact that Romney served on the board of Marriott International, which generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue through in-room pornography services at its hotels.
In stark contrast with Romney’s role at Marriott, which brought him over $100,000 per year, Senator Sam Brownback lead the fight against indecency and asked the hotel chain to stop offering pornography in its rooms.
Senator Brownback has been a leader on decency and media issues… Despite facing intense industry opposition, Brownback has worked to strengthen video game ratings standards and to study the impact of media on childhood development.
Hey Senator Brownback, would you care to maybe study the impact of involved parenting on childhood development? How about the concept of responsibility? Does that affect childhood development in any way?
God how I loathe the social conservative. It’s not like there’s a better option on the left though. Democrats are gearing up for another round of “Let’s ban the popular media format of the decade” all over the country. Last time it was music, this time it’s video games.
If Fred Thompson or Rudy Giuliani come out with this crap too, I might just not vote at all. I’ve had it. Social conservatives can kiss my ass. Let me say it again, for the morons in the cheap seats:
