commented on Traditional Republican Hypocrisy
@11 - I suspect this is to "clarify" a birth certificate issue in that a married couple can be listed as parents when donor sperm is used. His argument will be that only the birthing mother is the legitimate parent, thereby forcing an adoption proceeding to legitimize the non-birthing partner's parental rights. Yes, it will effect straight couples - but they traditionally have a much easier pathway through adoption compared to same-sex couples.

Obviously he knows the intended recipient since the labels were swapped, but it would be a crime for him to put the label in the right spot and re-send it. What hasn't been mentioned is that the intended recipient is certain to miss the delivery and complain, and the original mailer probably can figure out what happened - that would make me nervous......

So some are concerned that “intelligence” is selectively leaking incriminating illegal activity by administration officials for some nefarious controlling agenda? How about not doing anything illegal in the first place?
I would be much more concerned if the leaked information truly jeopardized national security, like releasing the details of an agreement with a foreign power, or the names of undercover operatives. Don’t do anything embarrassing and you won’t be embarrassed.

@25 and others - I use my real, full name with my local newspaper online comments so my neighbors will know how I feel about certain topics. I think there is a place for anonymity, and SLOG posters tend to do a pretty good job policing the occasional bad apple in the group - self regulation seems to work here, mostly.
