Finally!  Some people in Washington with at least a little bit of sense.  At least enough to realize that while some lobbyists are bloggers, not all bloggers are lobbyists.  In fact, most are just people with thins to say.

Bill to Treat Bloggers as Lobbyists Defeated

Lawrence Person writes “The attempt to require political bloggers to register as lobbyists previously reported by Slashdot has been stripped out of the lobbying reform bill. The vote was 55 to 43 to defeat the provision. All 48 Republicans, as well as 7 Democrats, voted against requiring bloggers to register; all 43 votes in favor of keeping the registration provision were by Democrats.”

I also note that the one’s voting to keep that provision were democrats.  Not a surprize.
