McCain and Feingold have managed to foster real bipartisanship — they’ve gotten liberal and conservative bloggers alike to detest them. Jerome Armstrong at MyDD, Atrios, and DailyKos all agree — this legislation has become a serious threat to political speech, and John McCain and Russ Feingold have become two of the most dangerous politicians to American liberty since Huey Long.

Now I’ve got to add a flag to my left sidebar.
Further Update: Kim du Toit echoes Phelps – “FUCK YOU!” Phelps’s was more emphatic, though.
