"It’s no secret to most techies that Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah is no
friend to the Internet. Some have described him, tongue-in-cheek, as the
Senator from Disney—not because he’s Mickey Mouse, but because he seems
to represent Anaheim’s interests much more keenly than he does Utah’s.
Hatch has been a supporter of the INDUCE Act, DMCA, and even suggested
that he’d like to see technology developed to destroy the computers of
people who download music illegally. Hatch will be up for re-election in
2006 and I’d like to see that he doesn’t get six more years to wreak havoc."

Its worth a good read.
