Rep, Spencer Bachus, thought police

Bill Maher seems to be under fire again for not being politically correct, so to speak:
A congressman says comedian Bill Maher's comment that the U.S. military has already recruited all the "low-lying fruit" is possibly treasonous and at least grounds to cancel the show.

Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., takes issue with remarks on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, first aired May 13, in which Maher points out the Army missed its recruiting goal by 42 percent in April.
It saddens me how many people are willing to casually apply the charge of treason to their fellow Americans for holding a dissenting opinion. I am amazed at the number of people that only value democracy and freedom of speech so much as they apply to themself.
