Jay Rockefeller & Co. versus First Amendment & Tea Party

2010/11/18

The Libertarian Advocate calls fowl:

HEY JAY, ONE BIG FAT ROADBLOCK FOR YOU. IT’S CALLED THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO OUR FEDERAL CONSTITUTION, YEAH, THAT THING YOU SWORE TO UPHOLD AND DEFEND.

The good senator has suggested that

the FCC [should] to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.”

Naw, Jay. It would be a “big favor” to people who invest in hokey carbon exchanges and booze companies. (How’s your portfolio these days, pal?)

What the good senator hasn’t figured out is that statements such as that are going to get a lot of air-time, paid and free, ’round about when his term comes due. Thank you SO much for your service, sir, and DLTDSYOTBOYWO.
