NN forum shopping

The Heartland Institute flags in an article that two prominent State Attorney Generals are now backing NN.

Like the kid that doesn't like what one parent says, goes and asks the other to get the answer they seek, neutrality-ites don't want to hear the "NO!" that they got from the FCC, the DOJ antitrust division, the House of Representatives and the Senate Commerce Committee.
 
In Washington this transparent maneuver is called "forum shopping." It is the common practice for those with weak or losing arguments.

I continue to be surprised at the general lack of any introspection about the clear flaws in the Snowe-Dorgan or Markey bills. I would think that neutrality-ites would open their ears and make adjustments to make their approach more attractive rather than just attacking the process, the institutions or the policymakers that disagree with them.
