Democrats Against Free Speech

Go figure. I guess it is sort of redundant. We all know that statists have never been fans of unregulated speech. Ask anyone in Cuba. And in keeping with their aversion to freedom and fear of criticism, the House Democrats voted yesterday to kill the "Online Freedom of Speech Act." This piece of legislation was designed to specfically exempt internet blogs and the like from the ill-advised, incumbent protecting, anti-speech McCain-Feingold fiasco that our ever-constitutionally-faithful President signed into law all the while admitting that the law was/is contrary to the First Amendment.
