A petition against free speech?

Democratic congressfolk have launched a petition against Rush Limbaugh for his statement that he hopes that Obama fails to get his policies implemented.

This is from politicians who somehow persist in calling themselves liberals. In free societies, if you don’t like what someone is saying, you can just stop listening. What business is it of government to approve or condemn what free citizens say, especially when those same politicians threaten to censor radio with a reimposition of the fairness doctrine?

Like they spent the last eight years rooting for W. to succeed.
