Does This Mean We Can Arrest Andrew Breitbart?

Gov. Haslam has signed a new law making it a crime to transmit or display “distressing images” online. Violators face jail time and fines up to $2,500.

Gosh I love Tennessee’s small government Republicans, don’t you? Aren’t they just swell? That whole freedom of speech, really it’s so not for the digital age!

I’m just curious how this is going to be enforced. Ah well, time will tell. You know, one thing Tennessee needs is more reasons to throw people in jail. That ought to take care of our nasty little unemployment problem, no?

    Hmmm…that makes me wonder if Corrections Corporation of America’s fingerprints are all over this.

  2. Breitbart and O’keefe. And I had always thought that Leni Riefenstahl was childless.

    No distressing images on the internetztoobz? Well, that ought cut traffic a bit.

  4. I’m guessing there are no photos by Robert Mapplethorpe hanging in the governor’s mansion.
