    It's amazing that a US Senator has a hard time putting together a coherent and factual statement. A mannequin? Really?

    That was Sen. Kyl. Look, you all obviously know where I stand and I think both these guys, Durbin and Kyl, are full of (expletive deleted), but the "mannequin" thing was simply a metaphor for the ATR software. So he's correct. The fact that he didn't use the correct term -- what is the correct term?? stick figure? Gumby? -- doesn't mean anything. We all know he's talking about the so-called "privacy" software for the MMW scanners, the ATR.

    Other than that, may I just say that I'm sooo glad I'm out of the news business. No way could I sit there with a straight face and listen to the absolute garbage that comes out of these people's mouths. God knows I had to do enough of it in the past, but this takes the cake.

    Senators used to be strong figures that represented their state's interest. Now they're just pimps who look good in a suit.

    Pimps certainly. But they do stay bought. Mostly.

    I would have used the term figure or generic graphic or maybe even icon, but then again I doubt Durbin can use a computer.

    That'd make the corporations and obscenely wealthy the "johns," and the general public the "whores" who don't really want to, but will be forced to drink Drano if we don't do as we're told.

    It was Kyl who said "mannequin."
