"Calling the Lowe's decision "un-American" and "naked religious bigotry," Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told the Associated Press he would also consider legislative action if Lowe's doesn't apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads."
I'm torn on this one.

First, Lowes (and everybody else) needs to stop responding to every nutjob fringe group. There have been too many instances of a hand full of letters or phone calls (or a larger, but still small number of form letters/forwarded emails/letters/faxes) that cause businesses and governmental agencies to respond. The whole FCC Janet Jackson wardrobe failure witchhunt was set off by 5-7 letters. We have to stop empowering these fringe nutjobs by paying attention.

Second, the fact that some Congressman threatened "legislative action" over something so patently out of bounds shows that [a] he needs to become unemployed ASAP and [b] the Minority House Leader needs to smack him around for even suggesting that our legislative process as his personal toy to get his way.
This is the Pub. Leave common sense at the door.
