Lamar Smith is a pathetic weasel.

You can find all the details about Smiths in-kind work for the MPAA with SOPA in Neils diary, but I just found an update courtesy of Instapundit and TechDirt:

Despite the fact that Congress was supposed to be out of session until the end of January, the Judiciary Committee has just announced plans to come back to continue the markup this coming Wednesday. This is rather unusual and totally unnecessary. But it shows just how desperate Hollywood is to pass this bill as quickly as possible, before the momentum of opposition builds up even further.

Bottom line, Smith is a sleaze, call your Rep and demand a stop to this farce. Oh, and hey Texas, got anybody to primary this schmuck?
