I wonder whether the App Store would block an app that celebrates Mr. David's accomplishments rather than defaming Mr. Waxman (calling Mr. Waxman a "Soviet-style regulator" is defamation in the same way as calling Mr. David a Nazi goon would be).
About iSlam Mohammed--I hear fear behind that decision. Alas.

he has a point.
He would have more of a point if the store had approved other campaign apps of opposing parties (I have no idea if they have or not) -- if they just blanket-reject all campaign ads, that would sound pretty fair to me ...
And Yoyo's point is interesting as well: I wonder if the app would have been approved if hadn't been an attack ad but one only espousing the virtues of the candidate ...
And, of course, Apple isn't nearly a free-speech democracy ;-)
