Comment Aww, do we have to live in the real world? (Score 2) 450

Yet again, much of /. fails to grasp the fact that most politicians don't see the Internet as a magical fairy land where the usual laws of society do not apply. Normally, the excuse is that all politicians are corrupt since no rational person would support DRM/defend copyright/enforce drug patents/etc without being in the pocket of some special interest group. This time, very few people are calling the politicians corrupt, which is wierd. Instead, the focus is on a legal technicality (nothing new), but I can't figure out why the politicians aren't being criticized more.
