This is a great reminder to not 'Bong and Blog'. It will come back to haunt you, since nothing is ever forgotten on the internet. This guy obviously wrote this non-sequitur post while puffing on something, and look what happened.
I've got lots of old posts on the internet that will hang around forever. If I ever went to a nuclear hearing, I would be roasted by people taking these things out of context. Far better, in politics, to have never written anything! Look where that gets people! BTW, I will never again mention certain American politicians by name, since my gal over at Science Notes, has found out it attracts paid Blogger-Assassins!
