A Marine source follows up on Wonkette's report that CentCom is blocking certain undesirable websites from reaching the troops:

Anyway, I had a few minutes today and thought I'd look and see what else was banned on the Marine web here. I think the results speak for themselves:

  • Wonkette - "Forbidden, this page (http://www.wonkette.com/) is categorized as: Forum/Bulletin Boards, Politics/Opinion."
  • Bill O'Reilly (www.billoreilly.com) - OK
  • Air America (www.airamericaradio.com) - "Forbidden, this page (http://www.airamericaradio.com/) is categorized as: Internet Radio/TV, Politics/Opinion."
  • Rush Limbaugh (www.rushlimbaugh.com) - OK
  • ABC News "The Note" - OK
  • Website of the Al Franken Show (www.alfrankenshow.com) - "Forbidden, this page (http://www.airamericaradio.com/) is categorized as: Internet Radio/TV, Politics/Opinion."
  • G. Gordon Liddy Show (www.liddyshow.us) - OK
  • Don & Mike Show (www.donandmikewebsite.com) - "Forbidden, this page (http://www.donandmikewebsite.com/) is categorized as: Profanity, Entertainment/Recreation/Hobbies."

Gee, I'm sensing a pattern here.

Bill O'Reilly (www.billoreilly.com) - OK

Cost himself a pile of money by making sexually explicit phone calls to a female coworker while masturbating.

Rush Limbaugh (www.rushlimbaugh.com) - OK

Oxycontin addict, used his maid as unwilling drug mule. Currently not in jail for some reason yet to be explained.

G. Gordon Liddy Show (www.liddyshow.us) - OK

Felon.

Quite the standards, there. Color me shocked that they're allowing Republicans to use uniformed troops as props at campaign events, in direct and unambiguous violation of military rules.
