Blogs Reach the United States Senate Floor

Mike Krempasky writes:

Today, for the first time in history, the word “blogs” was said on the floor of the Unites States Senate. And the context gets even better when you look at the legislation in question – the OPEN Government Act, as introduced by Texas Senator John Cornyn and some other guy from Vermont [Democrat Patrick Leahy–Ed]. The first significant reforms of FOIA in more than a decade are particularly designed to be internet and blogger friendly.

Power Line has some thoughts on this as well.

Hopefully C-Span has video; no word yet if Cornyn and Leahy were wearing their jammies on the floor of the Senate today.
