You know Net Neutrality has broad support when...

...the Christian Coalition and MoveOn.org jointly decide take out a big ad in the New York Times in support of it. The only people who are against Net Neutrality (which until very recently has been the effective law of the land) are the telecom companies like AT&T. The last thing I want is some cable company deciding which web sites I try to access will run faster than others.
 
By the way, according to digby, the House Judiciary Committee just passed enforcement for Net Neutrality 20-13. This is a major victory for grass roots activism that crossed the typical partisan lines. (Of course, titans like Google and Microsoft and Amazon were backing us up on this, too. Never hurts to have a few billionaires in your corner.)

I think the people who support net neutrality need a better term. For those people who use the net, but aren't geeks, "net neutrality" doesn't really mean anything. If we are going to win this, we need better framing of the issue.
