Phil Gramm endorsement

I know a lot of pundit-conservatives don’t like McCain because he had the audacity to run against W in 2000, which is not a valid reason. That he has attempted to rein in free political speech may be more valid. Regardless, I’m apt to listen to what Phil Gramm has to say because I respect him a lot, and wish he had got the nod in ’96 instead of Bob Dole.


1st amendment, not a partisan issue

Interesting post over at Daily Kos about regulation of internet campaigning.

Apparently the FEC, according to some judge somewhere, has the power to regulate politicking via the internet. That means websites like Daily Kos and right here at logipundit can be regulated by the federal government.

Thanks John McCain! And thanks George W Bush, for declaring the campaign reform of McCain Feingold as unconstitutional and signing it into law anyway! So now a new law was introduced to exempt the internet, which passed. But this double standard is ridiculous. Now, here in OH the democrats put a similar campaign finance reform item on the ticket, which looks like is getting soundly defeated.
