ABC is reporting that Texas Republican Senator John Cronyn is sending a letter to the White House complaining that the Obama administration is stifling free speech by asking supporters to send the administration any “fishy” emails they receive about healthcare reform.  “Fishy” is a funny word to use in this case, as what they apparently were referring to emails that make claims about reform that the reader finds unusual given what s/he heard from reputable sources.

Seems Republicans want to make any outrageous claims they want to without being scrutinized.  What they want is to limit my free speech by prohibiting me from telling others that their claims are wrong.

But fishy was the wrong word.
