MATT WELCH notes Kerry’s support of a crackdown on broadcast indecency and observes:

There’s nothing I’ve seen to indicate that a Democrat-run FCC would be a damned bit better than Michael Powell’s boobs, and Kerry’s comments about media consolidation in the same interview indicate a stronger willingness to regulate.

Indeed. The anti-indecency move is bipartisan, and instead of blaming Bush, opponents should be explaining to the voters why it’s a bad idea. Because it’s not something being foisted on voters by a few right-wing zealots. It’s something with broad support, which is why Kerry and Bush are so close together on the subject.
