Saturday Moments: From torture & Republican sex scandals to zombies

From The Washington Post:
Republican Congressman quits in Page Scandal
Meanwhile, AMERICAblog and Talking Points Memo say there is evidence that the GOP leadership covered up, or at least, ignored the Florida Republican's sexual interest in pages.
The "Value Voters" met in Washington, D.C., and claim that I'm (as a lesbian) from the "pit of hell" and, apparently, the source of all evil. Talk To Action has a good roundup of all the coverage of the conference.
On a more personal note: I've always thought that since I'm so powerful I'm considered the "most important issue we face today" (as the so-called values voters claim) that I should have some real control. Why can't I control the weather, for example, or something else equally vital? You'd think there'd be some perks coming from being lesbian or gay and personally undermining civilization. How about a break on my taxes?
OK, this is a couple of days old, but it gave me such a chuckle that I thought I'd pass it on because this is mostly certainly a time when we need a few laughs. Fom Boing Boing:
