If you ever wished for a brief nugget to tell you all you need to know about the brain trust writing the editorials at Rupert Murdoch's rag, the NY Post, this from today's edition:

On Thursday night, ABC anchor Peter Jennings felt the need to explain to viewers that two protestors had been forcibly removed by security officers from the floor of the Republican Convention when they tried to disrupt President Bush's acceptance speech.

Jennings seemingly couldn't understand why the Bush-bashers were being escorted out. Weren't they merely exercising their First Amendment rights?

"What they could be charged with, other than political expression, I do not know," intoned the perplexed Jennings.

Did he sleep through 9/11?

Whether you agreed with the right of those two protestors to do what they did Thursday night (and frankly, I felt it was inappropriate), you've got to be kidding me that the editorial is comparing this brief disruption by two, again two, vocal critics and what occurred on September 11, 2001? And to think that some actually take these editorials seriously!
