Lawyer channels long-dead Founding Fathers to defend anonymous blogger

This is amazing!

The lawyer for the formerly anonymous blogger, Rosemary Port, author of "Skanks in NYC" blog, has defended her actions by reading the minds of the founding fathers.

Port called a model a "ho" and a "skank" on her now defunct blog.

Her lawyer, Salvatore Strazzullo, says the Founding Fathers knew that one day there would be anonymous bloggers.

OK, so he didn't actually say that.

But he did say: "I'm ready to take this all the way to the Supreme Court. Our Founding Fathers wrote 'The Federalist Papers' under pseudonyms. Inherent in the First Amendment is the right to speak anonymously. Shouldn't that right extend to the new public square of the Internet?"

I wonder if the Federalist Papers say anything about posting cheerleader pictures on blogs?
