Just to pin a name on this whole fiasco:

"To grease the rails for this idea, Sen. Arlen Specter, a Pennsylvania Republican, and the section's other sponsors slipped it into an unrelated, must-pass bill to fund the Department of Justice. The plan: to make it politically infeasible for politicians to oppose the measure." (from the article)

So while Bush did sign the bill, this Specter fellow put Bush in a position he had to sign since he doesn't have the power to veto a particular part of the bill without vetoing (sp) the whole bill (in this case a "must pass"). So if you guys were wondering who to be mad at, here you go.

Well, being that I know a human form from Pennsylvania, he won't take kind to this. Mr. Specter is usually a nice person, however I think with his recent cancer scare, he's thinking he needs to pass a few thousand bills before his death to be legendary.

Mr. Specter was also the one to help PA out a good bit, so give the guy some credit. It has only been in the past year or two that Mr. Specter and his counterpart, Mr. Santorum, have decided to get into their actual careers (before as-of-late, they mostly sat in the back of Congress and "yay"- or "nay" -ed bills).

So, in reality, blame it on someone who thinks that he will die any minute and needs to magically be memorable (if only he'd pick a good reason).

Granted, he may have done some good things (honestly, I don't know much about Specter), but this certainly isn't one of them. I just wanted to point this out because many had Bush in their crosshairs when he wasn't actually the one to come up with it.

Besides, if Specter wants to be remembered, I'm pretty sure he daesn't want to be remembered as the "prudish old-guy that made the internet lame."

come up with it.

no, but he is the one who had to sign the bill, so he obvusly agrees with it (or just was not of sound mind at the time, yes that sounds about right )
and apart from that, he is the one we want to blame everything bad on, but make sure he gets no credit for anything good!

Goober the bill wasnt only about the e annoyance thing, it also had another thing that the the party/president would not deny ... its how alot of minor stupid laws get passed.

There is also a good chance that bush didnt read it ... because he doesnt know how

The bill was tacked on to a bill that was to fund the department of Justice. Bush for some reason isn't allowed to amend a bill, he has to either sign it or veto it. He wasn't going to not sign a bill to fund the dept. of Justice or else he would be in hot water over that. These senators tacked the e-annoyance bill to this bill because there was no way Bush could get around signing it.

Like LordSeafood said, this is how many dumb laws get passed.
