The Blagorgeous One 

So, apparently Governor Rod R. "Rod" Blowdriedevich doesn't like that particular nickname and is trying to get the populace to switch to the more mellifluous "Governor Blowhardevich." The Guv's comments concerning his new-found zeal to prevent nasty ol' video games from polluting The Youth of America (via Zorn):
You can expect of course, the usual suspects to challenge us in court. The (American Civil Liberties Union) And you know, just an editorial comment, they get all bent out of shape when, you know, a judge posts the Ten Commandments in a courtroom.

And you know, I don't know about you, but I support each one of those Ten Commandments. But it's OK for some 6-year old to play a violent video game where the 6-year old is the participant who decapitates a police officer and then urinates on him.

Somehow, a 6-year-old has a right to do that, but a judge can't put the Ten Commandments up. So things are somewhat upside down when it comes to the ACLU in my mind.
Notwithstanding the fact that he doesn't seem to understand that the First Amendment (RIP 2004) has, you know, several different clauses covering different concepts, this guy really is an idiot.
