I can't believe what Chuckie Schumer just said

In reference to reinstating the Fairness Doctrine, NY Senator Chuck Schumer on Fox News just asked the host the following: "Well, do you think we should regulate pornography?" His "point" was that since the FCC regulates porn, it should also regulate political speech. He actually said that regulating one and not the other would be "inconsistent." How 'bout that? Pornography now equals political speech!

Well, of COURSE it would be inconsistent. It SHOULD be. Do we regulate lettuce like we do tobacco? Why not? They're both freakin' leaves, aren't they? Isn't that ... "inconsistent?"

The next four years sure is gonna be "fun."

UPDATE: Wow, a check around the blogs and this is all over the place. I just happened to be sitting there when Schumer came on FNC. Here's the vid:

If Obama wins, the wave of liberal fascism heading our way is truly staggering. Speaking of "liberal fascism", I can't recommend high enough Jonah Goldberg's book of the same name. Incredibly well researched, documented, and laid out. Does Obama's call to "spread the wealth around" and advocacy for a "civilian police corps" give you the creeps? Well, it should...and Goldberg traces the fascistic tendencies of liberals throughout the 20th century to the present day.

Interesting that Chuckie would equate (partisan) political speech with pornography, since there's so much that's left open to interpretation. Like, a naked chick spread out on a bed in Playboy is pornography, but Goya's Maja Desnuda is art. But they're both naked chicks on a bed!

If Limbaugh or Hannity points out that Obama's auntie is an illegal immigrant living in a Boston housing project it's political speech, but if Dan Rather accuses GWB of skipping his Guard duty it's legitimate news reportage, even with bogus documents and hearsay from a dead guy.
