And the asshole award goes to…

Gov. Don Siegelman of Alabama, for his wonderful statement at a recent press conference:

“I don't think guys ought to be wearing earrings. I think kids who put metal in their tongues are idiots. Parents ought to be there talking to their kids and saying, 'You know what kind of fool you look like with an earring? If God had wanted you to wear earrings, he'd have made you a girl.”

Unbelievable.

This was in reference to an eight year old boy recently expelled from school for wearing an earring. For more information, please visit:

Let me STRONGLY urge everyone to contact the governors office or even call in a complaint to him at 334-242-7100. This is not only a MASSIVE violation of the boy's civil rights (there is no ban on girls wearing earrings), but is also a malicious hate crime perpetrated on us by the state. It is an act that CAN NOT go unchecked.

A civil (not insulting) snailmail letter is the most effective method. It can be sent to him at:

Governor Don Siegelman
State Capitol
Room N-104
600 Dexter Avenue
Montgomery, AL 36130

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
