Blogs in bad company

The Louisville Courier Journal reports:
FRANKFORT, Ky. — Political bloggers have joined pornographers, casinos and hate groups on the Fletcher administration’s list of Web sites that state employees are blocked from visiting.

So have blogs and Web sites dealing with entertainment, auctions and humor, as well as sites that could transmit computer viruses.

Political blogs were among the categories added to the list Wednesday.
I have the feeling that if the same rule were enforced in Wisconsin, we'd all be out of business, and maybe WisPolitics, too.

Hat tip: Political Wire.

UPDATE: It turns out there's more to the story. The gov's office started blocking one site it didn't like, and things escalated.
