Cornyn Mentions Blogs on Senate Floor

Mike Krempasky reports that, “Today, for the first time in history, the word “blogs” was said on the floor of the Unites States Senate.”

Interesting. I’d have guessed it would have happened some time ago. Blogs have been all over the mainstream media for a couple years now and bloggers played a significant role in securing the resignation of a Senate Majority Leader.

  1. The best part about Cornyn’s speech was the law he introduced – reforming FOIA to be blogger friendly (waving FOIA fees for us like they do for the NY times)

  2. Dave Schuler says:

    Are they sure he wasn’t just clearing his throat?

  3. McGehee says:

    Maybe he was referring to Ted Kennedy and the clerk mistranscribed the terminal “B”.
