Ironic Congressional Torrent Pirates

The same people who are destroying the internet in an attempt to attack pirates are actually engaged in the illegal downloading of copyrighted materials:

In recent weeks we discovered BitTorrent pirates at the RIAA, Sony, Fox, Universal and even law-abiding organizations such as the Department of Homeland Security. By now it should be clear that people are using BitTorrent pretty much everywhere, and not only for lawful downloads.

Today we can add the U.S. House of Representatives to that list, the place where lawmakers are drafting the much discussed “Stop Online Piracy Act” (SOPA).

I haven't read about this level of hypocrisy since David Vitter, Larry Craig and, well, every Republican who legislated family values while sucking down meth and trolling for hookers.
