You know that there must be something to Global Climatic Change when it's a cold enough day in Hades that it freezes over and I would actually agree
with FoxNews for a change!
Grayson Wants Critic Jailed Claiming to be His
Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., is asking U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to launch an investigation into a Web site launched by a Republican activist
that parodies his own re-election site.
My, my, my. Florida Rep. Alan Grayson wants to see one of his critics go directly to jail -- all over her use of the word "my."
In an effort to raise money against the outspoken freshman Democrat, a Republican activist named Angie Langley has launched

Although, if the Florida AG upholds his argument that the use of "my" is false-representation and unlawful, then I'm going to sue MySpace for
falsely representing themselves as a space for me!
This is beyond silly, and is not just an unnecessary burden on our Judicial System, but a flagrant disregard for the U.S. Constitution from one of our
