You might think that our corrupt and incompetant Attorney General would find it difficult to find a sympathetic audience these days. But you’d be wrong:

Gonzales is scheduled to deliver a 45-minute speech at the Seattle Westin Hotel’s Grand Ballroom on the Justice Department’s efforts to protect intellectual property and combat cybercrime. Justice Department spokesman Evan Peterson declined to confirm details of Gonzales’ schedule, but he is also expected to visit the U.S. attorney’s office in Seattle.

The speech, free and open to the public, is being sponsored by the Discovery Institute, a think tank best known for promoting “intelligent design” as an alternative to the theory of evolution, and TechNet Northwest, a political coalition of technology executives.

    Nothing surprising here. It’s just the wingnut welfare machine in action.

    Is torture intelligently designed?

    Well, that’s another nail in the coffin of the current administration’s integrity.

    Just reading that makes me want to steal some intellectual property.

    Given the IDiots’ desire to get around the First Amendment in public schools, is Gonzalez going to give a tutorial on how to flout the Constitution?

    Another nail?

    That coffin’s long been nailed shut, covered in cement, and is now the foundation for one of our secret foreign torture prisons.

    here’s a good one: the discovery institute used to have an ad up on for the lecture on their site:
