Count me in...

Patterico poses the following question: who will take the pledge?

If the FEC makes rules that limit my First Amendment right to express my opinion on core political issues, I will not obey those rules.

As I mentioned rather profanely before, I will not alter my blog behavior one iota if the dickheads-that-are powers-that-be decide that they don't want to hear any more commentary from the little people. You remember them, the US citizens: they were in all the papers. Even that little scrap that Congress has seen fit to wipe their collective asses with, the US Constitution.

I realize that I could simply convert my site into an ALL ANAL SEX!!! ALL THE TIME WITH BARNYARD ANIMALS DOING TEENAGE SLUTS!!!! and then I'd be safe. Hmmm, what to do, what to do. Should I retool my blog to discuss bestiality, necrophilia and hardcore porn to stay safe, or continue with my usual staple of stale jokes and political commentary, and potentially end up violating, umm, I have no idea what, since the regulation would be fragantly illegal.

Short answer: fuck 'em.

I'm in, and I hope that everyone in this country is with me. If not, I weep for our future.

Update: Stephen Macklin of Hold The Mayo made the following comment:


My blog will change in response to FEC rules. No more quizzes, no more book or movie memes. All political advocacy all the time.

I stand corrected.

A good solution is to have use the dialogue of your Porn Stars as a vehicle for your own political expression.

"Oh yeah baby, NAIL me like the Democrats do those judicial nominee's."

"You like this??? You like me abusing you anyway I want, like the Supremes abuse the Constitution??"

But I never watched porn so I can only speculate about the dialog.
