Save Online Freedom of Speech TODAY

We've got weeks to focus on Alito, but I need your help today.

H.R. 1606, the Online Freedom of Speech Act, is up for a vote tomorrow, Wednesday, November 2. Its cosponsors include Rep. John Conyers and Rep. Tim Ryan.

(See part one here.)

Let me tell you what the bill does:

* This all started when Congress passed McCain-Feingold, which didn't mention the Internet at all -- and this was in 2002.

* So the FEC, in passing its regulations to implement the law, explicitly said "none of the anti-coordination rules apply to the Internet".

* The pro-regulation lobby sued, arguing that this went beyond the FEC's authority, because the spirit of McCain-Feingold meant that Congress really wanted to regulate such activities.

* They won, and the district court ordered the FEC to regulate. They've been working on that since March, and for a lot of reasons, there is a better than decent chance that they'll now get it wrong.

Oh thank you, thank you, thank you.

That was especially well done, unlike so many attempts to be funny that don't remember the characters they're using in the parody, and the characters they're parodying.
