Ok, now I'm really worried ...

Wizbang is hosting the video of FEC chairman Scott Thomas' speech at the Politics Online Conference. If you can, I urge you to view it.

I came away from the speech with the distinct impression that this guy thinks the whole online blogging thing is a massive joke.

And bloggers are retarded stepchildren whose concerns need no more addressing than a perfunctory pat on the head and the assurance "Don't worry, we'll take care of it."

I don't know when the last time I heard someone who is given the privilege and opportunity to clear the air spend almost 15 minutes addressing the assembled in such condescending and smug tones. And Thomas had some really bizarre "examples" .. his really angry Aunt Betty ... blogger Billy in the basement in his Lyndon LaRouche shirt ... the Saddam Hussein Missile Corporation ...

What the hell? Scott Thomas is exhibit number one for the complete abolishment of the FEC and a concerted effort to get McCain-Feingold repealed and its sponsors defeat at the next election.
