Palin’s Amazing View of First Amendment

ABC News: Palin Fears Media Threaten Her First Amendment Rights. “If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations,” Palin told host Chris Plante, “then I don’t know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media.”

One might hope that she has more of a clue about the rest of the Constitution than this nuttiness. One might be disappointed, too.
