A Pox On Both Their Houses

There's something of a brouhaha on the "right side" of the blogosphere in regards to the open threats by Harry Reid and others to pull ABC's broadcast license if they broadcast an unflattering 9/11 documentary.

Unfortunately, Republican hands are not entirely clean with respect to this sort of behavior. My congressman, Tom Davis, threatened to have Major League Baseball's antitrust exemption looked at if George Soros' consortium won ownership of the Washington Nationals. Here's the DCCC
quoting Roll Call

I suppose the Dems may be worse in terms of the number and prominent position of those making the current round of threats, but on the other hand it's something that's received more press. It's a shame; I was planning on voting "D" for the first time ever for Davis' Democratic opponent Andrew Hurst, but now I'll likely wind up throwing my vote away on the Libertarian.
