Right Timing: DeMint and Thune to force vote on Fairness Doctrine

Lettuce and Olay fresh off Barack Obama's pan of the Fairness Doctrine, Senators Jim DeMint and John Thune are announcing plans to drive a stake through the heart of the vampire.

Highlight of DeMint's press release:

"I'm glad President Obama finally confirmed his opposition to the Fairness Doctrine, which attacks the right of free speech on talk radio, but many Democrats in Congress are still pushing it.

“With the support of the new administration, now is the time for Congress to take a stand against this kind of censorship. I intend to seek a vote on this amendment next week so every senator is on record: Do you support free speech or do you want to silence voices you disagree with?"

What will the Democratic response, or hold it... maybe they don't believe in a response.
