For the Fu**ing love of the 1st Amendment *


“If Bush Can Blurt Curse, So Can Network TV.” What a line, from the New York Times today. Countering the wishes of the Bush administration and the FCC, the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York struck down yesterday a government policy that allows the fining of networks and stations for obscene language, whether spontaneous or scripted.

If Bush can utter the “s” word to Blair (whether he realized his mic was on or not), and Cheney the “f” word to Leahy, I suppose us serfs can too.

*I could use the entire “f” word, but it is my choice not to. Thanks, Freedom of Speech!
