Senator Orrin Hatch is officially a moron

From Wired magazine, link via beerdrinker:

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suggested Tuesday that people who download copyright materials from the Internet should have their computers automatically destroyed.

But Hatch himself is using unlicensed software on his official website, which presumably would qualify his computer to be smoked by the system he proposes.

The senator's site makes extensive use of a JavaScript menu system developed by Milonic Solutions, a software company based in the United Kingdom. The copyright-protected code has not been licensed for use on Hatch's website.

While the problem has since been correct and his current site has the copyright in the source code, Google cache shows the truth of his original violation.

This guy is having no luck at all. His site has had porn links, and he has been labeled a terrorist. He's a composer, too -- take that as you will.
