Phony Outrage

by shamanic

I want to go on record as opposing any BS "sense of senate" resolution condemning Rush Limbaugh's perfectly acceptable political speech in his "phony soldiers" comment.

It was offensive, untrue, and a smear, but the last I checked, we're still living in America. The MoveOn resolution was utter crap, but frankly to continue playing this game of having the government of the United States condemn speech is pretty dangerous.

Politicians are free to make speeches and issue releases on this or any subject that catches their fancy, but the everyone should catch their partisan breath. The First Amendment continues to guide us in this country, and the federal government has no business chilling free speech by passing overheated resolutions on the senate floor.
