Dissent Is the Highest Form of Making Shit Up

So John Kerry is galloping around the countryside, probably still trying to be relevant for a run in 2008, and he's all up on this "dissent" stuff. As a matter of fact. He continues to peddle a certain quote: "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism." There's nothing that makes better political theater than quoting Thomas Jefferson. Unless you're really quoting someone else, and Jefferson never said that at all. And guess what? Yep. You guessed it.
