On a Day When We Celebrate Our Independence, the Bill of Rights Gets Buried

In the spirit of go Cheney yourself ...

It's not just the rights themselves but the story their violation gets buried between reiterations of Bush's lame Iraqi defense and information that Kerry supporters were picnicking as if either were newsworthy. Yada yada we're safer, Saddam bad, Iraq and Afghanistan, Iraq and Afghanistan (let Cheney say Saddam and al Queda), yada, yada and by the way ...

Regarding Saddam, the deposed Iraqi president, Bush said: "Because we acted, the dictator, the brutal tyrant, is sitting in a prison cell.

Two Bush opponents, taken out of the crowd in restraints by police, said they were told they couldn't be there because they were wearing shirts that said they opposed the president. Supporters of Bush's presumed opponent in November's election, Sen. John Kerry, attended a picnic across the street from the capitol at state Democratic Party's headquarters.[Nitpicker emphasis]
When the citizenry can't speak for themselves, are restrained or removed to free speech zones, it's nice to know we have a free and unfettered press to stand in for us.
