Marijuana is a Jewish plot? Who knew? Apparently, this nut thinks so.

Kids in Kansas are scared. Not because of dealers. Not because their lunches look like they are about to leap at them from the trays. Not because their teachers wear penguin suits and carry long rulers to whap them with. Nope. The students in Kansas are scared because the cops carry tasers. Frankly, I'm icked about cops in schools to begin with, but armed cops? Dude, you're going to detention! That'll be 15 demerits and here's 50,000 volts on your ass. Parents in that district, school officials, and cops need to get a grip. Of course, in Kansas, you only die if God calls you home. Science has nothing to do with it. Imagine if he was caught smoking Jewish marijuana?

Murray Waas reports today that according to Scooter Libby's testimony President Bush and VP Cheney told him that it was OK to release Valerie Plame's name to the press. His defense seems to be suggesting that the President declassified the documents and therefore he was free to release them. I was going to make a crack today about the House of Representatives should be called a House of Ill Repute until the Republicans lose power there (K Street, Abramoff, Ney, Delay, Doolittle, Cunningham, et al), but after reading Waas' report, I've got to think that it's a whole goddamn Neighborhood of Ill Repute. Not that we didn't know that already, but he really took the steam out of my post.

Update: National Geographic covered a similar plot from the ancient days.
