It Gets Worse
Now the campaigning virus has spread to official U.S. House of Representitives websites:

"U.S. Senator John Kerry (D-MA) is quoted in today’s edition of Greenwire as saying, “that black stuff is hurting us,” with regard to oil. Members of the House Committee on Resources found the Senator’s comment absurd.

“John Kerry is dead wrong,” Chairman Richard W. Pombo (R-CA) said. “Oil doesn’t hurt Americans; John Kerry’s anti-energy policies hurt Americans. In fact, this is exactly the kind of rhetoric and bad policy that has led to the outsourcing of good American energy jobs. Last year alone, the United States outsourced more than $100 billion worth of American jobs, economic growth, and national security to foreign countries for our energy needs. Americans are left with a supply and demand imbalance that creates higher prices at the pump and longer waits on the unemployment line.”"

I'd like to take this opportunity to address the Congress, if I may:
Distinguished ladies and gentlemen of the United States House of Representitives, creating your own personal political rants site is not difficult. I've done it for free thanks to the fine people at Blogger (TM), but I'm sure that you can buy an easy-to-remember domain name with your re-election funds. Just have some of your interns set it up for you and maintain it. That way, when the Democrats take back the House, the Ethics Committee isn't going to get medieval on your ass.
I thank you for your time.
