Our Republican Senators, usually naif Rinos eager to go along to get along, are on the warpath about the Obama administration's stifling of free speech. Sen. Mitch McConnell is speaking out. He is singling out David Axelrod's desire to stifle a group's right to band together for a political cause and speak out. Axelrod wants the federal government to have the right to shut down such free speech. Their goal has been to shut down the TEA Party and the IRS has been doing just that.

Obama will tell any lie if
It can sway the political naif
If the truth is rejected
And he gets re-elected
Then kiss this poor country good-bye, if...

Is this a case of the naif preying upon the naif? If you create an APP and call it “Boy-Ahoy”, what could possibly go wrong?

Good riddance, but there will be 10 more that pop up to take its place, I fear.
