Senator Hatch favors "booby traps" of all sorts

grab bag, politics, society, wackiness

It’s been noted pretty widely that U.S. Senator Orin Hatch recently suggested that copyright holders should have the right to implement booby traps to literally destroy the computers of those who illegally download MP3s.

Now it appears as though Senator Hatch has endorsed “booby traps” of a different sort.

Up until a day or two ago, his Web site was linking to a former-Utah-Tourist page that had been “porn-napped” to trumpet “Huge Natural” attractions of a different sort.

In fairness, it’s pretty clear that the senator had no idea that the site he had linked to was suddenly displaying natural beauty of a type generally not welcomed in public amongst his uptight demographic. But IMHO, it’s amusing nonetheless 🙂
