California Uber Alles

So I was making the rounds, visiting the blogroll, you know, checking in to see how Michele's template was holding up or if Andy had any pithy remarks about the state of the world or if Beana had any more stories about her boobs being on fire or throwing up in a Motel 6, and somewhere along the line (not sure when) a popup ad appeared on my screen. Actually, several did, but one caught my attention. Instead of advertising Spycams or Viagra or Cialis or home mortgage plans or "U R TEH BIG WNINR!!!!11!!!@!!!11", this one was a popup from Homeland Security. Seriously. It was a Homeland newsletter. "Stay alert. Stay informed. Stay secure" was its slogan. I think it said something else about freedom being slavery and war being peace, but I closed it as soon as I recovered from my shock. Has anyone else seen this thing?
