    And it will in all certainity be veoted the second it hits President Bush's desk. The text of this bill:

    Those Congressional co-sponors...impressive lot, huh?

    Critics of this call it a "thought crime bill" because of passages such as this:

    http://www.access.gpo.gov/uscode/uscmain.html

    This thing has already passed the House, pending in the Senate. A bid to extend protection to the elderly and member of the armed services failed,of course:

    Almost a straight party-line vote, will be another sustained veto.

    Uh, equal protection anyone?

    For all the bitching liberals do about the president's disregard for the constitution, they sure seem to have no qualms about wiping their asses with it either. Well, when doing so is politically expedient.
