Exercise of Constitutional Rights Termed Heckling.

According to WaPo and USNews freedom of speech is now heckling.

Well known liar and right wing madman, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, gave a speech and took questions at the Southern Center for International Studies in Atlanta yesterday and was confronted with several real Americans.

Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern (pictured) grilled Rumsfeld on his lies leading up to the invasion of Iraq. Rumsfeld responded with more lies. Following McGovern's questions, a gentleman told Rumsfeld that he was a "great man", this was greeted with much applause from the fantasyland natives in the audience. Also three anti-war protesters were removed.

All in all, a pretty good day for freedom loving Americans.

"Why did you lie to get us into a war that caused these kind of casualties
and was not necessary?" asked Ray McGovern, the former analyst, during a
question-and-answer session.

"I did not lie," shot back Rumsfeld, who waved off security guards ready to
remove McGovern from the hall at the Southern Center for International

Rumsfeld did, however, show a flash of brilliance with his keen grasp of the obvious.

"There is no question our country is facing difficulties in Iraq and
difficulties in Afghanistan," he said

  1. When Rumsfeld answered you could see how thoroughly the public relations people are doing their jobs.

    He had practiced every line right down to the sarcastic comment, "you're getting pretty good play today," and the ridiculing question of why the questioner thought troops were wearing chemical gear.

    The last one about the chemical gear was actually kind of easy. Troops wear exactly what they are told to wear by their commanders.

    But Rumsfeld won't turn those PR cards until he has to. So the hecklers will always be a little behind the curve.


I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
