Politics makes strange bedfellows, and apparently, so does Goodmail.

Plans by America Online and Yahoo to begin using Goodmail's certified-email system have brought together two rival political action committees: the liberal and the conservative Both oppose the idea of paying ISPs for guaranteed delivery of messages to opt-in recipients, and have even recently joined forces.

On its Web site, is urging members to sign an online petition to "stop AOL's email tax," which it says favors giant emailers over members' friends, families and favorite causes. And, if you scroll past a screed against on the RightMarch homepage, you'll find a link to its email letter expressing concern over the rise of a two-tiered Internet that favors the affluent over non-profits, civic organizations, charities and small businesses.

Both organizations are also part of a coalition of more than 50 non-profit and public interest groups led by Internet civil liberties advocacy group, the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Other members of the group include Gun Owners of America, The Democratic National Committee and the National Humane Society.
