He's at it again. Cheney is dictating what is "patriotism". Unfortunately, we live in a democratic society. Just as our laws come ultimately from the people, so do our principles and thus so does patriotism. If one man could go about dictating it, we'd be in a dictatorship.

I suppose he can say anything he likes. He's not harming anyone by it (hopefully, but ask the troops he "supports" about that). Being allowed to say what you want to is one of the founding principles that is more popularly held as patriotic to believe in.

Remember, it's not the speech everyone agrees with that needs protecting.
