Obamacare, the deficit, Iran....the typical issues a guy like Matt Doheny might talk about in his bid to unseat Rep. Bill Owens.....
Along comes something called SOPA...the Stop On-line Piracy Act....a sweeping measure intended to stop theft of Hollywood work product.....
It also pretty much stymies the whole Internet by allowing anyone to shut down anyone else by mearly alleging theft of copyrighted product.
Suddenly free marketeers on the right and Internet nerds on the left are joining forces and beating the stuffing out of Mr. Owens and other Members of Congress who support the measure.
For Mr. Doheny, it's a chance to have a Kumbaya moment with President Obama who has rapped the law.
Today, the Internet giant GOOGLE put a black box on its site to show solidarity with stop SOPA folks.
In politics you never know when an issue will rise up and bite you in the ass.
