Brownback Takes Potshot at Thompson

On the subject of the presidential campaign, Sen. Sam Brownback is seeking to establish a new federal standard that would prevent violent television shows from airing on broadcast networks before 10 p.m.

The measure could notably prevent Law & Order from being broadcast before 10 pm.

Not only is this red meat for the social conservatives, it's also a slap in the face of former Senator Fred Thompson, who starred on the show.

The move connects Thompson to violence on television, possibly loosening the ties between the soon-to-be candidate and the evangelical right.

Is this turning into a national political blog or will you still do the local stuff?
