To Speak or not to Speak September 25, 2007

I scratched my head yesterday at all of the fuss about President Ma-Muck-it-up and his speech at Columbia University. I have always thought that one of the basic tenets of our great democracy is freedom of speech. As Voltaire so aptly said: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Yes, he is a dictator, he denies the Holocaust (actually the number murdered – which also makes me NUTS), is an agitator and happens to look insane but giving him a platform allows Americans to actually listen to the nuttiness that comes out of his mouth. The biggest laugh he got yesterday was when he actually said that there is no homosexuality in Iran.

– Since I am chatting about speech this morning:

– Marcel Marceau chose NOT to speak

– All of the Repugnant candidates chose NOT to attend the debate at Morgan State University in Baltimore. I guess they are not interested at all in even pretending to speak to the Black voter anymore. John McCain was the only candidate to accept the invitation to a TV debate on Univision, the major Hispanic network. Guess they have given up on speaking to the growing Hispanic vote too.

– The auto workers struck out at GM yesterday. They spoke their minds. Wonder what would happen if they all spoke out against the war too?

– Giuliani Confronted for Desecrating 9/11 Dead – This group wants to stop Mr Mouthpiece.

– Even Polly wanna cracker speaks to us. Actually, it is Flo the parrot, singing and speaking to us.
