    Uh,yeah-that was a little hard to read. What a crapy attempt of censorship.I don't see these guys lying and putting their lives on the line. I suppose the issue is more about how bad it makes Kerry look. I wonder what kind of letters the men themselves in these commercials got.


    :poop:

    I cant figure out how anyone can think a grass roots campaign to stop Michael Moores movie from being shown nearby is censorship while the DNC cracking down war veterans who are talking about their experience with Senator Kerry is perfectly acceptible.

    Interesting take on the letter. Put this together with the CNN transcript and you can see WHY they are panicking. Glenn Reynolds, a law professor, http://www.instapundit.com comments on this:

    Apparently none of the people in the ad ever served on either of the two boats with Kerry, and several had previously payed them. They're backing was largely GOP oriented. This article kind of says it all. Even the Bush campaign is distancing itself from the ad. Check it out:
