Do as I say, not as I do

The wingnuts are already abandoning Bush in droves, but I wonder what the Christers' reaction will be to the news that federal judges are throwing an FCC obscenity law back for revisions? The law was an attempt to raise fines for television stations which allow dirty language on air, and is part and parcel of the moral minority's attempts to 'cleanse' our media of any resemblence to reality, while forcing a reversion to bland 1950's broadcast sensibilities.

The judges' rationale for their argument that the new fines and standards are unreasonable? Bush and Cheney drop the F-bomb repeatedly, so what justification does the government have for punishing television stations that allow similar discourse?
