Where to even begin... How about the First Amendment?

All the uproar about the SwiftVets is truly amazing. While I think some of the items of their critique are overly biased and certainly overly harsh, they DO have the right, under the First Admendment, to have their opinions and information heard. It is certainly no worse han most of the content (and certainly with a greater number of eye witnesses). The Imperial News Media has pulled out all stops, with absolutely NO attempt to hide their ravenous bias to discredit the claims without ever actually REPORTING the claims. Kerry can solve the whole issue merely by releasing ALL of his records an let the world decide. To date he has refused to. In the meantime, in support of the first admendment, which liberal and the Imperial News Media seems to think only applies to liberals, I strongly urge everyone to peruse the SwiftVet site, and/or buy the book "Unfit for Command" and make the decision for yourselves.
