Free speech

This is nonsense.

So - the US is prosecuting a woman who stood up to protest Hu Jintao.

The Post makes excuses, but let's get one thing straight - apparently in the US, leaders don't need to face hostile criticism (see my earlier post about how in Parliamentary systems, the Government, PM, and Cabinet have to answer to the Opposition without a Scott McC) - whether they be foreign or domestic.

But - recall - this is the President who wouldn't speak in our Parliament during his State Visit to Canada - for fear of hecklers.
