    Belgium's Vice Prime Minister, Socialist Party member Johan Vande Lanotte, has decorated the urinals in the offices of his ministry with stickers. They show an American flag, the head of George W. Bush, and the words "Go ahead. Piss on me."

    Since he's so toilet obsessed, I just couldn't help but put Johan Lanotte in a big bowl of diarrhea from http://ratemypoo.com with the Belgian Flag behind. It's an appropriate throne for the Belgian King.

  • The Preachers Of Tolerance Make A 3-Year Old Cry

    It's not quite as clean cut. Parlock apparently has been politically active with his family for years --the worst case being a decade ago when his son held a "Remember Vince Foster" at a Hillary Clinton appearance. They're all experienced with what happens at political gatherings. This was not normal behavior. He stresses that he doesn't yell, shout, or otherwise try to heckle or interrupt when he appears. He and his family all just stand there quitely with signs, simply to show the other side also exists. Everyone agrees ripping up signs is neandrathol behavior, but people are also questioning why you'd bring a three year old to a political event. Important points are: This wasn't a campaign stop, this was at the airport where Kerry didn't even stop to speak but just got on the plane. Kerry was merely passing through the airport in the town where Parlock lives. There were only about 200 people total on the tarmac to wave at the Senator as he walked onto the plane. Everyone was apparently friendly until the Senator showed up. Secondly Parloc claims that he's been to multiple events with his family holding Bush 2004 posters and has gotten positive feedback from people. He's saying so far in this campaign cycle things have been calm and okay and an environment where it was safe to bring in children. This turned out different. Lastly a few days later he and his daughter waited in line four hours to meet President Bush at another political event, and it was back to the normal positive experience they been having. That the Bush event was managed and overseen while the airport was not may be a factor in the difference in people's behavior. There's a bogus story about the sign being ripped up by Secret Service men because no signs were allowed. This is clearly contradicted by which even has an upside-down "Kerry Edwards" sign in the background. More disturbing is someone recently setting off a pistol at one of their local events. To get to an airport tarmac though you first have to go through a metal detector, so you'd still think it a safe environment to take your kids to.

    He hasn't posted his .mp3 of hsi call to Savage yet. Interesting since he has posted all the others he's made.

    If you watch the clip on the glaad.org site, you've got an east coast straight white male from rival radio show Don Geronimo and Mike O'Meara calling up and saying he wants to force Savage to suck his male member, but he'd first have to take a baseball bat to Savage's teeth to allow it to slide down easier.

    Yeah, that?s real defensible. Glad Glaad is taking up the caller's side and defending the right of obscene callers to describe sexually assaulting people.

    And as usual, glaad which claims to be for "fair accurate reporting" is now mis-reporting that the caller was gay. Suuuure he was. In Glaads' dreams.

    Is this how your organization envisions homosexuality, Glaad? Is this the kind of homosexual behavior that Glaad wants to defend? The right to mutilate people, break people's teeth to better force them to provide oral sex to gay rapists?

    There's Glaad, off to the charge again. Doesn't matter the caller's behavior is indefensible, or even that he's not gay. ("Yeah, sure." is obviously said with sarcasm) Say AIDS and Glaad jumps all up and down, making no sense as usual.

    Summary of the law suit:

    Owners of several anti-savage websites hounded the Chicago radio sponsor Culligan to drop $100,000 in radio advertising in Chicago from Savage Nation distributor Talk Radio Networks. To do this they used misquotes and lies.

    The case exceeds $75,000 in damages and includes multiple businesses (the anti-savage web sites are businesses. They sell advertising, merchandise and solicit money from visitors). As a law suit involving multiple businesses across multiple state lines, it is kicked up to District Court level and will be settled in Chicago, which is where the plantiffs businesses persuaded Culligan to drop its $100,000 advertising contract with Talk Radio Networks.

    Samples from the Savage Nation Show are being rebroadcast without permission. Falsely edited photographs have been distributed. False and misleading e-mails are being sent to TRN advertisers in an effort to pressure these companies to end business relationships with TRN. Through false statements are intentionally and unjustifiably interfering with business relationships of TRN.

    Charge Counts:
    1. Tortious Interference with Contract
    2. Intentional Interference with Prospective Economic Advantage
    3. Violation of Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act
    4. Violation of Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act
