The Online Coalition

When word spread about Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly’s decision in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in Shays v. FEC, there was a flurry of activity around the blogosphere. Captain’s Quarters has been leading the charge with his detailed coverage. Geek With A 45, capturing the passions of many, has with the advent of a new blog, started a “confederacy of bloggers”, with his McCain-Feingold Insurrection.
Now there arises yet another call to arms. Looking at the list of signatures, this group really seems to have a multi-partisan feel to it. Bloggers from across the political spectrum are lending their signature and support. Go take a look here and then toss your hat into the ring.
For as much as “The McCain-Feingold Insurrection” addresses our passions, and that is a necessary thing to do. “The Online Coalition” , appears to be arguing the case in a more reasoned fashion. The end result, in my mind, is both groups provide two pronged attack against those who would see a precedence set, whether immediately acted on or not, allowing for the curtailing of our first amendment guarantees.
