Tidbits From Elsewhere - 10/20/06

Alabama Democrat has posted a link to the new GOP ad. Oddly enough, the ad contains footage that is reminiscent of an old LBJ ad, which Altoid has posted.

NBC will not be airing a portion of Madonna's show which includes the singer on a mirrored cross. This is in response to some Christian groups threatening to boycott one of the show's sponsors. I can probably tell you now that, as a result of the controversy, the show will have more viewers. Anytime I see a celeb put his image on a cross (remember Kanye West?), it makes me want to hurl, and the celeb in question will usually be ridiculed. What the Christian right has effectively done is make Madonna look like a martyr, given the show hype (meaning that more people will watch it), and made themselves look like fascists. Thus, their actions further prove that extremists are pretty good at achieving the opposite of their original goal if given enough time. Seriously, does anyone really take Madonna seriously these days?

Robert Rouse (Left of Centrist) has proven why you don't go to bed after a night of horror movies and Bill O'Reilly.

And Dan at Between the Links has posted regarding the now infamous Twinkle recording that everyone seems to be talking about. Not only does it have no truth whatsoever, but Twinkle has also managed to (finally) turn Patricia Todd's election as the first openly gay legislator in Alabama into the "gay agenda" debate it should have been. (Todd's platform, by the way, has absolutely nothing to do with the "gay agenda", nor does she plan on making it so.) Dan also has an informative piece on Dick Clark, the other third-party candidate.
