John McCain's War on Blogs

John McCain has made clear that he doesn’t like the blogosphere.

Now he has introduced legislation that would treat blogs like Internet service providers and hold them responsible for all activity in the comments sections and user profiles. Some highlights of the legislation:

– Commercial websites and personal blogs “would be required to report illegal images or videos posted by their users or pay fines of up to $300,000.”

And so forth.

Panel 4: Yeah, especially when your husband's family thinks dropping off books-on-tape every so often fulfills their obligations!

Panel 5: Sigh...
