A Chicago area radio host claims he sent a request to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark the lame phrase "Obamanation." He weirdly wanted exclusive rights to the lame phrase, he says, to raise money for local charities.
The Patent Office (not unreasonably) refused. But according to the disc jockey, someone in the Patent Office included in the reply a printed screen capture of the Wikipedia entry for the term "butt plug."
I have no idea what this is all supposed to mean. Perhaps the next David Broder column will put it all into perspective by calling for a return to civility and moderation, and fondly recalling the days when there was no place for anal sex toys in American political discourse.
The intrepid scribes at World Net Daily are all over butt-plug-gate like stink on…well…on a butt plug.
There's no truth to the rumor that former senator and '08 presidential aspirant Jonathan Edwards plans to boycott the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in protest.
