    The Republicans are warning about what you're going to end up with if the rulemaking goes badly - if you try to apply "offline" regulations to online activity, the result will be a severe limitation to our freedoms.

    You can misinterpret the quotes - but don't ignore the actions - three Republicans voted to appeal this judges ruling - those three Democrats voted not to.

    Oh - and if you want to go a little better - you don't have four votes on the Commission for giving bloggers the press exemption - and that's a party line vote, too.

    Jerome at MyDD has been following this a lot more closely than you have. He's right and you're wrong.
