CNN.Com Sort Of Censors Penn Jillette

Penn Jillette today tweeted: "Here's my CNN article on Obama and turning into the skid. No big changes except 'Damn' should be 'Goddamn'"

The line in question from Jillette's "Commentary (Special to CNN)" is, "President Obama is so damn smart."

Atheist-Libertarian Penn, who knows the PR value (and, to a degree, the philosophical principle) of using boundary-stretching words in family-friendly places. Thje libertinish libertarian had a show on Showtime called "Bullshit" He also -- more quixotically -- has named his children Moxie CrimeFighter Jillette and Zolten Penn Jillette.
