Defend this one, Lefties.
From AllahPundit at HotAir:
Apparently, the “protest” was nothing more than six servicemen handcuffing themselves to the fence to object to “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
We certainly don’t want to accuse a president who’s peeved at gay-rights protesters and who’s known for excluding the media from traditional press opportunities of quashing unfavorable coverage without good reason.
Exit question: On a scale of one to 10, where would this rate on the Crushing-of-Dissent-o-meter if it had happened under Bush? (Exit answer: Eight!)
I’d say more like a ten. MSNBC would have been raving about this for weeks if it had happened under Bush.
We’ll see if it gets any coverage tonight though. Maybe on Maddow?
