Funny Thing Is, They Still Poll Better Than the Greens
Because it's been an extremely boring day here in Washington (seriously, we got all excited about a new Treasury Secretary), let's turn for entertainment to the lunatic fringe of our happy socialist friends across the sea:
Dutch pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to 12 from 16 and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals, sparking widespread outrage.
We enjoy Reuters' seeming surprise that even the freewheelin' Dutch, despite their refusal to arrest people for smoking weed, are OUTRAGED by pedophilia. We are also trying to figure out some way for American political strategists to make hay out of it. Seems difficult, as these guys don't have that lengthy a platform, but we found an angle in the last graf:
The party also said everybody should be allowed to go naked in public and promotes legalizing all soft and hard drugs and free train travel for all.
That's right. Sex with animals, kiddie porn, and mass transit. It's just wrong.
