New York Assemblyman Wants You To Sign Your Mean Internet Posts About New York Assemblymen

Last night, when I was swatting at a mosquito, I thought to myself, “I should probably run to the hardware store to get a blowtorch, because that would be the best and most efficient way to kill this here mosquito, and also while I’m at it, I might be able to use it to fix the leaky faucet.” This approach to killing a mosquito and solving other unrelated problems is similar to the way New York Assemblyman Jim Conte, a Republican (DUH) from Long Island, is taking on the important issue of people saying mean things to children, businesses, and elected officials under the cover of anonymity on the Internet: through taking a blow torch to the whole Constitution. Because why NOT make it illegal for YOU to say stupid shit under a fake name, especially given that HE’s so willing to say stupid shit under his real name and all?

What have we learned about Rick Perry so far this morning? As governor of Texas, Rick Perry invited Chinese telecom giant Huawei to do business in his state after national security experts from both the Obama and W. administrations told everyone, “do not even open these guys’ emails because they are spies.” Perry not only opened, but he clicked 86 times, forwarded it to his entire contact list and then traveled to China with taxpayer money to personally tell Huawei, “come stay at my house if you need to send out a few more of these.” Hey guys, at least China writes back and offers some money once in a while, unlike God, said Rick Perry.
