F&*% You!

Seems the Bush Administration gets it's own words used against them in a court ruling.

A New York Apeals court has struct down an FCC ruling that was leveling fines against broadcasters for "Fleeting explatives" - their reason - Well the President and Vice President use them... so... could they really be that bad?

But in a lengthy judgment, the court also examined the wider issue of profanity
on American TV and in public life, and First Amendment protection of profanity,
as it rejected the FCC's policy that the words 'f***' or 's****' always had a
sexual or excretory connotation.
Specifically it noted that both President
Bush and Vice-President Cheney were on record as having used those words in a
non-literal way, Mr Bush when he told Tony Blair that the United Nations needed
to "get Syria to stop Hezbollah to stop doing this s***' and Mr Cheney when he
told a senator, on the floor of the Senate, to "f*** yourself'.

Oh I wonder what Cheney has to say about this one?
