LOW FIDELITY: Clayton Cramer explains

LOW FIDELITY: Clayton Cramer explains the First Amendment to Tim Robbins, who seems to have problems understanding what it actually says.

Cramer also links to this AP story:

One casualty of the war with Iraq is the First Amendment right to oppose it, actor Tim Robbins says.

Robbins and longtime companion actress Susan Sarandon are war opponents whose scheduled appearance at baseball’s Hall of Fame was canceled last week by former Reagan administration aide Dale Petroskey, now the hall’s president.

“A chill wind is blowing in this nation,” Robbins told a National Press Club luncheon Tuesday. “Every day the airwaves are filled with warnings, veiled and unveiled threats, spewed invective and hatred directed at any voice of dissent.”

If Robbins has ever commented on the previous administration, which was alleged by numerous conservative groups of siccing the IRS on them, please email me–I doubt it very seriously.
