It's entirely possible that you're right, but handing over our last source of unfiltered information to a small handful of corporations still scares the crap of me. And this isn't some "government > corporations" liberal thing, either. I'd be equally scared if partisan politics led to something like a small conservative majority outlawing Internet content that they deemed "indecent" or some bulls**t like that.

The fact that the above scenario sounds even remotely plausible should let you know what I think of Omni exclusively branding liberals as we-know-better-than-you elitists. (Remember that crazy time when conservatives were trying to pass a constitutional amendment to try and suppress homosexuality? Oh wait...) As far as I'm concerned, personally, if recognizing that the vast majority of Americans are uninformed (or misinformed) makes me an elitist, then I'm guilty as charged. And so is James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and who has ever realized that the masses must be kept in check in order for a free society to work.

(For the record, I'm not a big fan of liberals legislating their "values", either. I'm looking at you, Hillary. Stop trying to appeal to soccer moms with your video game fear mongering and get back to the people's business. Your cynical, baby-kissing approach to politics makes me very much doubt your character.)

However, Hillary's got the right idea going after video games because, as it's been demonstrated by the current administration these last few years, the hot button social issues are what gets the attention. The Lefties have been criticized by everyone outside of and within their own parties of being too spineless and afraid to fight as dirty as those who've taken control of every branch of the American government are willing to. At this point, anyone outside of the small conservative circle of rulers is desperate just to get their foot back in the door. This political play on Clinton's part, though weak and not quite as important as some of the issues that've been taken up by others vying for a spot on top (global warming, abortion, gay marriage, etc), may help her to gain that little bit of momentum necessary to get somewhere in 2008.

Too bad it's a bummer of an stance, but I've got a feeling that we're going to be forced to choose between her and the spectre or GWBush in two years. If it comes down to it, Hillary's got my vote and I can only hope enough sane people make it clear that once she's in office, going anywhere near video games will be unacceptable. Dangerous, I know, considering that she'll be expected to uphold her promise to clean up gaming to those who vote for her, but working that much harder to fix up what I regard as an outrageously corrupt and disgusting government as the one ruling over me today will be worth the trouble.

Well, as I mentioned before, it's all about getting that foot in the door. When those primaries come along, Biden may not stand a chance against Clinton, only the third woman in American History to make a major run for the presidency (insert Lewinsky jokes here, thanks). Playing that card may be the best hope the democrats have got, so don't be surprised if they exploit it (however politically incorrect it may be).

As for Net Neutrality, there's still a fight to be had in the Senate, so if you haven't already, e-mail your Senators!
