Free speach for most is still a right denied

By way of the Geek with a .45, the FEC has determined after an extensive deliberation that bloggers are entitled to the same press exemptions granted to the old media.  That's good, because it means that bloggers won't be directly regulated with respect to their opinions.  It's bad because it admits the possibility that they could be regulated in the future.  Laws which violate the bill of rights are best responded to with a Supreme Court ruling rather than a regulatory finesse. 

Not that the Supreme Court has not fallen on its face on this law in the past; I'm just sayin'.
