Bridgeport judge Janet Hall is giving the Bushies fits simply because she understands the tenets of the First Amendment.
A federal judge lifted a gag order Friday that shielded the identity of librarians who received an FBI demand for records about library patrons under the Patriot Act.Let's face it: This is clearly an attempt by the Star Chamber Bushies to keep everything under the rug. Not allowing a librarian even to discuss the so-called USA PATRIOT Act is similar to not allowing the photographing of caskets returning from Iraq or FEMA not allowing the photographing of corpses in New Orleans.
If it reflects badly on Dear Leader in any way, the real powers that be will disallow it. Thank goodness that Judge Hall sees this strategy for what it is.
