    The FBI is joining the Bush administration's War on Porn. And it's looking for a few good agents.

    Early last month, the bureau's Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as "one of the top priorities" of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and, by extension, of "the Director." That would be FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.

    Mischievous commentary began propagating around the water coolers at 601 Fourth St. NW and its satellites, where the FBI's second-largest field office concentrates on national security, high-technology crimes and public corruption.

    The new squad will divert eight agents, a supervisor and assorted support staff to gather evidence against "manufacturers and purveyors" of pornography -- not the kind exploiting children, but the kind that depicts, and is marketed to, consenting adults.

    It'd be hard to really draw a line with porn. Porn is one thing, like "regular" porn, that really doesn't need "regulated" but I agree that the pissing, scat, fisting, baseball bat in ass type porn is something we could do without.

    I personally look to the feds to protect me from minor nuisances like hurricanes and terrorist attacks, not the truly large-scale stuff like nudie pics. But I guess not all Americans share my warped priorities.

    Love your tongue-in-cheek, Steve26. You point out a shining example of our dear Republican administration's screwed up priorities.

    And the Dems spend time ignoring important issues like the economy and defense while focusing on bike helmets and child porn.

    Yeah, the economy really did go to hell in a handbasket during the Clinton years, didn't it? And we sure suffered mightily for Clinton's failure to confront pressing military threats like Iraq. ;)

    As The Onion said so presciently in the aftermath of the 2000 election: Our long national nightmare of peace and prosperity is finally over!

    oh well then, that's all right. it must be a good idea if someone in authority says so - after all, that's what they're there for, right? to tell us what's right and wrong and to protect us from the insidious danger of thinking for ourselves.

    nevermind. maybe larry flynt will track those guys down and pelt them with fruit.

    Damn, I was seriously hoping FBI agents were POSING for for porn, that would have at least been something useful.

    if they could get real jobs like that, they'd hardly be working for the FBI in the first place.

    Of course, we all know what John Ashcroft did with that child porn, don't we?

    The Clinton years are long gone. God forbid if Katrina happened under the limp-wristed command of Mr. Flip Flop or the "Old Yeller" Dean.

    Umm... I think you should you speak for yourself and not try to decide what others get to see.

    I'm always amazed by the number of people who want to curtail free expression.

    If you don't like it, don't watch it, and don't buy it.

    Right, but I'm expecting him to go head-over-heals just to do an exceptional job in his wonderful state. Maybe the dumb-ass got shaken up enough over his falling ratings from his days of neglect of Katrina aftermath that his buddies will steer him perfectly with Rita.

    Thanks, Dr.,

    We need to take this redneck racist to task for his inability to remedy acts of God.
