Clear Channel Sucks

They won't play ads that are political unless they support dubya. A guy tried to get a series of radio ads on Clear Channel that basically say, "we're all Americans, even if we disagree" and CC refuses to air them:

This is a paid radio moment–
Some of us disagree with the President.
We think the Iraq war is a mess.
We think vote suppression is a crime.
We think tax cuts for the rich are a bad idea.
We think business doesn’t know best. (pause)
And we think dissent is an American value. (pause)
This country was born because people questioned authority.
It’s as American as apple pie.

Apparently it's offensive to be American anymore. You need to be reTHUGlican to be listened to. I wonder how soon before the ThoughtCrime police are going to be formed?
