The Internet Has Spoken

In the wake of yesterday's internet blackout at least five key senators have withdrawn their support from the controversial online piracy bills now before Congress.  Senators fleeing SOPA included Florida;s Marco Rubio, a Tea Party stalwart and Orrin Hatch, a sponsor of the bill and  ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee. 

Opposition is also building in the House where lawmakers seem to be remembering who they work for and who they were elected by.  So much for round one. The internet has spoken.
