Quote of the day

Discussing the potential for the FEC to regulate Internet political activity, including blogs, Democratic commissioner Ellen Weintraub:

"Given the impact of the Internet, I think we have to take a look at whether there are aspects of that that ought to be subject to the regulations."

Read it again. This is a perfect example of the mindset of the typical bureaucrat: if something is having an impact, then we better start looking at how we can regulate it. There's much more on this issue all over the place (generally from incensed bloggers): Here, here, here, and here.
