Remember kids, Bush says questioning your government is bad. Now repeat after me: Baaad.
I guess I just don't see this. When did Bush say this? I know you don't mean he literally said it, but what has he specifically done to give this impression. I mean, she's out there, right by his ranch, causing a big embarrassment to his administration, and nothing's really happened to her. Yes, Drudge is a jerk and he's maligned her terribly, but being attacked by some rabid ideologue on a blog is a far cry from government-sanctioned suppression.
[T]he Bush administration sucks in the way it is really coming down hard on dissent and questioning...
I hear things like this a lot, but again, I'd like some specific examples. There's no lack of dissent and questioning; sometimes it seems like it's all I hear. I know in Ann Arbor you can't swing a dead cat without hitting somebody who regularly dissents (and loudly) from the Bush Administration's policies. There's nothing wrong with that, but I don't see anybody coming down on it, hard or otherwise.
Drudge, Malkin, Coulter, et al, are loudmouth ideologues and not to be taken seriously (much like Moore and Chomsky on the other side of the fence). But it is possible to thoughtfully dissent from Sheehan's point of view: see here for an Iraqi's response.
