The FEC regulating webloggers? Commissioner Bradley Smith worries that may happen. I remember talking to Cam Edwards about this on his show when I was at CPAC. I thought the notion was absurd, and there was such an easy work-around. If the FEC decides to limit what webloggers and write about or link to I'll move TAM to a server outside the U.S. I'll then start using annonymizer services to connect to that server. Then I'll dare the FEC to lock me in jail for speaking my mind. I'll be like John Kerry and tell the FEC to "Bring...It...On!"
I will not be stopped engaging in free speech. Sens. McCain and Feingold and take their free speech restriction law and shove it up their asses. You won't take away my weblog or my voice unless you pry the keyboard out of my cold, dead hands.
This isn't a partisan issue. There are those on the Left who are concerned too.

"Yet Another Reason to Never Vote for Feingold, McCain"
UPDATE: Erick at Redstate offers up an opposing view. There may be more nuance to this issue than Bradley Smith let on.
