"Senators Reassure Bloggers". Then Why Am I Not Reassured?

Senators McCain and Feingold rushed to reassure bloggers today that they will not be prohibited from posting on political topics by the McCain-Feingold Campaign "Reform" Act. That's all well and good, but the decision whether blogging can be regulated is no longer the Senators' to make -- it rests with the Federal Elections Commission and the Federal Courts, both of which have been known to, shall we say, improvise from time to time.

The chickens are definitely coming home to roost and we all potentially will pay the price with our hard won freedoms.
