If China jumped off a bridge...

Entirely too many WTF moments on the Internet as of late.  Joe Lieberman wants to give the President executive power over the Internet.  An effective "kill switch" for the Internet in case of some cyber attack. 

Let me get this straight.  A person (or persons) attacking the Internet would, I assume want to somehow disable it.  So in order to protect ourselves, we need the ability to break the Internet.  Huh?  I don't know the President's position on this, nor do I care.

His reasoning is that China has this capability, so we should, too.  In the words of Jon Stewart, "Well, if China says it's OK...".
