Burgers and Hiltons

There are those who somewhat casually dismiss the Karl's/Burger King commercials featuring P Hilton warming up to what she may do best...her sole talent, as it were. They make the argument that after all, parents who think their children should not view the commercials should simply "control the TV." Usually this is followed by a disclaimer to the effect that 'I'm old enough to watch this and dismiss it.'

Let's call a spade a spade. If you don't want your kids to imbibe this stuff, why should YOU? Not only do you not let the kids ingest sewage--YOU don't ingest it either, right?

I find it somewhat interesting that the same people who say it should be perfectly alright to allow this suggestive commercial be aired, are the same people who say that the Pro-Lifers shouldn't be allowed to put up signs about what abortion really is, or allow anything about God to be mentioned anywhere in our schools. But hey, it's only free speech if they get what they want, right?

I think the word is not 'free' but "protected."

IOW, THEIR speech is "protected."

You're right.
