What does 'free speech' mean anyway...

if a person can't state his opinions openly?

ST. PAUL, MN (Talon News) -- [Randy] Kelly, the mayor of St. Paul, breaking ranks with the Democratic Party and is supporting President George W. Bush in the 2004 Presidential Election.

Many area dems are offended, as is evidenced by this editorial comment from St. Paul's major newspaper:

Mayor Kelly has announced that he is supporting George Bush because he saw a bumper sticker that said, "I hate Bush!" I have a question for him — since many Republicans not only have a Coleman bumper sticker, but also one that says: "Wellstone's dead. Get over it," can we assume Kelly will now support Norm Coleman's opponent?

I have never seen a "wellstone's dead, get over it" bumper sticker. I think libs like bumper stickers better than conservatives. Republicans tend to understand the meaning of the term 'resale value.'

There is apparently a group of incensed folks who want to recall the St. Paul mayor because he actually spoke aloud of his preference for president. I guess they are still smarting about Sen. Norm Coleman wising up a few years ago. What they need to do is get over that.
