AFFF

(no subject)

My family, my parents, my sisters and their immediate families went to Corolla, NC, for a week ending last Saturday. We ended up coming home a day early due to the threatening weather. It was pretty fun, though a bit stressful towards the end as it became clear that Hurricane Charley would hit Sanibel, the island my parents live on in Florida.

My sister, thinkingcapp, has discussed various aspects of the visit on her journal. Collapse )

So, in addition to trying to suppress the Swiftboats for Justice 527 ads, Kerry is now trying to suppress Unfit for Command. Interesting how quiet he has been about his own 527's ads (moveon.org, for example), and the various sketchy Bush attack books and movies. So much for the first amendment protections, eh? Oh, the first amendment only protects liberal speech.

The MSM, of course, is complicit by its silence. Can you imagine the hooplah and outrage if Bush tried to suppress the silly movie with the title stolen from Bradbury or an Al Franken book?

I had little interest in reading UfC, but if the Kerry campaign wants it removed from bookstores, it must be something, eh?
