But now they are just shocked an horrified that the FCC is not treating cable companies fairly. A complaint made doubly hypocritical because -- if one actually troubles to read the cases -- the requirements of due process are met. Some folks may think "the law is a ass" if it allows the FCC (and other administrative agencies) to operate by adjudication rather than by rulemaking, but take it up with Congress to get the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) revised.
No, this is just the delightful whining of Bush refugees who never imagined that all the crap they pulled might someday rebound on them. I expect more of this as time goes by.
For myself, I have long maintained that "if the law, in its majestic equality, equally forbids rich and poor from sleeping under bridges," then any rich guy found passed out under a bridge goes to jail. For the last 8 years, and even before that, you all thought the existing APA protections were sufficient. Suddenly, when the worm turns, that's not good enough?
I care about due process, but I'm not an idiot. Nor am I so wonderfully post-partisan that I do not enjoy seeing you hoist by your own petard. You wanna talk process reform? Excellent. But only on a going forward basis. You all will have your conduct judged under the rules that you made.
