No, it's not a joke....not if McCain & Feingold have their way, according to this article at Captain's Quarters. Their latest bill would all but eliminate political blogging, because of the implied monetary value of a link. Can you imagine? Next they'll be saying that wearing a t-shirt to support your candidate has a monetary value to the candidate and is subject to campaign finance reform!
This is no joking matter, however. This is a serious encroachment on our right to free speech that has bloggers from the far ends of both political fences up in arms. Please contact your senator and contact your representative TODAY and let them know you do NOT support the McCain-Feingold bill!
