Anti-speech Morons

Looks like a judge, one Colleen Kollar-Kotelly (whose name shows up like an ass rash on it Internet), has ordered the FEC to regulate political speech on the Internet.
If Congress doesn't change the law, what kind of activities will the FEC have to target?
We're talking about any decision by an individual to put a link (to a political candidate) on their home page, set up a blog, send out mass e-mails, any kind of activity that can be done on the Internet.
Hmm, well one guess which president appointed Kollar-Kotelly to the federal bench. How about a helpful hint!
Smith and the other two Republican commissioners wanted to appeal the Internet-related sections. But because they couldn't get the three Democrats to go along with them, what Smith describes as a "bizarre" regulatory process now is under way.
It puzzles me that the party that belches every time someone protests about having to pay to subsidize a kiddie cartoon that promotes homosexuality has a HUGE problem with someone linking to George Bush's website from their blog. Well, it doesn't puzzle me as much as reaffirm my disappointment in the lunacy of the American left.

Looks like it's time to stick it to the man a find a foreign blogging service! If friggin' Saudi Arabia can't keep people from blogging about what they please, then I don't have any idea what the idiots in Washington are thinking when they think they can stop speech here.

(And I wonder what the fate will be for the domestic blogging concerns when everyone jumps ship? Hmmmmm......)
