'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings

My good friend Patrick pointed me toward this, and now I see other folks have joined in the laughs:
Welcome to Conservapedia

A conservative encyclopedia you can trust.

Conservapedia has over 3,400 educational, clean and concise entries on historical, scientific, legal, and economic topics, as well as more than 350 lectures and term lists. There have been over 252,000 page views and over 14,800 page edits. Already Conservapedia has become one of the largest user-controlled free encyclopedias on the internet. This site is growing rapidly.

Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American. On Wikipedia, many of the dates are provided in the anti-Christian "C.E." instead of "A.D.", which Conservapedia uses. Christianity receives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance. Read a list of many Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.
Um, yeah.

Some other friends of ours, like skippy, have taken a few quick and easy shots at it.

But heres' what I find interesting. I did some searches for what I would think were conservatarian icons. Like Pat Buchanan:
There is no page titled "Pat Buchanan". You can create this page.


Wait, it gets better. Here are more responses to searches:
There is no page titled "condaleeza rice". You can create this page.

There is no page titled "george will". You can create this page.

There is no page titled "john ashcroft". You can create this page.

There is no page titled "newt gingrich". You can create this page.

But here's the best part of all:
There is no page titled "george w bush". You can create this page.

Cause, they've been real busy . . . and . . .and...and...I dunno.

In all fairness, there is a George W. Bush page, because case insensitive searches are just tooooo hard, even though at Wikipedia, such searches work all the time, because George W Bush is the same as george w bush.

But here a special treat, searched for in both lower case and first letter caps:
There is no page titled "Donald Rumsfeld". You can create this page.

And just to seal the deal, here's this:
There is no page titled "Bill O'Reilly". You can create this page.
Bwa haa haa!
