Dumb As A Rocker: Popular Musicians Unite To "Oust Bush"

Most other conservatives and I certainly do not begrudge rockers and country stars the right to speak their mind (what little of it is actually being exercised) and try to convince others to agree with them. But they do need to be grown-up enough not to whine and pout when other, more mature people disagree with them. They need to be intellectually honest and stop throwing around the "censorship" whip, or at least crack a book (other than the Communist Manifesto, the quotations of Chairman Mao, or Rolling Stone) and learn that censorship is performed with force by governments to silence dissent, not when citizens or privately owned businesses refuse to listen to their Marxist, infantile drivel.
