Whom would YOU rather meet in a dark alley, Baby Cakes in the pre-dawn Crazy Hour, left, or the power-crazed Senator John McCain from Arizona, right? You can't herd cats, Senator McCain, and you can't herd bloggers.
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.
Judging from the comments I have read over the past few days, I believe there are plenty of others out there who feel the same way. Some of you have said as much in comments, and some of you have written blog posts that are consistent with my view. But I want to see if people will expressly make this pledge on their blog.
Are you kidding? Count us in, big time. A gal who refused to say "I do" 32 years ago when the Chelsea City Clerk asked us to agree to love, honor and "obey" isn't about to go wobbly now. Our storied answer then is the same as our answer now with regard to kowtowing to FEC -- or any government -- rules that would limit our First Amendment right to say what we think on our blog: We can't.
