Should Obama Control the Internet?

Hot Air takes an interesting look at a bill moving its way through the Senate that would give the president wide power over the Internet:

And this is beginning to make its way around the Net from both the left and the right. As Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey puts it: “When Mother Jones and Jules Crittenden agree, isn’t that a sign of the apocalypse?”
