Meanwhile, in the Senate

Remember the Senate? A committee just passed a bill letting the Justice Department be a proxy claimant in copyright infringement suits, so all those bad-publicity-for-Hollywood RIAA and MPAA lawsuits could be filed by the Justice Department instead. It also "creates a Cabinet-level copyright-patent czar charged with creating a worldwide plan to combat piracy." All Democrats voted for; most Republicans voted for, but four voted against.

Also, if you missed it, MSNBC'c Scarborough acknowledges that they cover whatever the McCain campaign wants them to cover:
"I want to ask you, what will we talk about two days from now?" Scarborough replied: "Whatever the McCain campaign wants us to talk about, because the McCain campaign is assertive."
And here's the kind of sick fundamentalist politics I mostly stopped covering: American Family Association's One News Now condemns France for France's support of letting queers be legal, and, oh, by the way, the Large Hadron Collider is stupid because if they want to know about the origin of the universe they should just read Genesis. Morons.
