Really? Wow. Just wow.
That should be good news for senator Kirk from Illinois.
Great move SCOTUS. Is nothing sacred? Not to mention, this is just the opening that a guy like Mitt Romney needed. I suppose now we'll be hearing about his tales of taking "one for the team" in the Vietnam War. Maybe he'll even start wearing a Purple Heart. It's a free country. Lie, lie, lie. Doesn't matter if it's the truth. If you tell enough lies over and over and over, stupid people will believe you.
Making false claims about medals is a dumb thing to do but should not be against the law. Our First Amendment guarantees Free Speech even though it unfortunately includes lying.
