Okay, I was trying to write something about the new ad by anti-gay lunatics NOM – they of the Colbert Report's "A Storm Is Gathering" spoof – arguing their rights will no longer matter when gay people can get married. But when I typed in – try it! you'll like it! – I got the homepage for the KKK: "Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to White Christian America!"

Where to begin? White Pride TV's "This Is The Klan," reporting on "issues of concern to those of European descent," especially white women and "racially aware young people"? Klan-themed hats, t-shirts, jewelry? Klansmen ceramic statues with blood drop logo, a "nice display item" with or without its lighted eyes? Shipping in the U.S. free, add 40% elsewhere. Really.
