I was getting ready to go on a rant about soft money.
Then I actually clicked on the link and is all I have to say.

I think they should send the money back...

Why should they? Seems the public is almost accepting the idea that you can buy everything

I think it would give the Republican party greater credibility next time they come out with some statement about how kids can buy pornography on any street corner for $5 a go.

(I was actually kidding about the sending they money back statement, and I'm not really serious in this post either.)

Awesome as it would be if the Republicans were taking porn money, Mammoth Erections is actually a concrete company.

Oh well.

Someone at that company must have a great sense of humour. Either that or they're just astonishingly naive.

A lot of construction companies in the US have "erections" in the name.

Most of them don't include the word "mammoth," however!
