SARAH PALIN, THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

Is there ANYTHING this woman actually understands? She's incorrectly stated the job of the Vice President four separate times, and now is claiming that the media is threatening her First Amendment rights by criticizing her. I shit you not...

ABC News' Steven Portnoy reports: In a conservative radio interview that aired in Washington, D.C. Friday morning, Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin said she fears her First Amendment rights may be threatened by "attacks" from reporters who suggest she is engaging in a negative campaign against Barack Obama.

Palin told WMAL-AM that her criticism of Obama's associations, like those with 1960s radical Bill Ayers and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, should not be considered negative attacks. Rather, for reporters or columnists to suggest that it is going negative may constitute an attack that threatens a candidate's free speech rights under the Constitution, Palin said.

"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."


Are you batshit insane, woman?! The First Amendment has absolutely NOTHING to do with you getting asked questions and "attacked" by the media. It's about giving you the right of free speech, which you use waaaaaaaaaay more than you should. You're an embarrassment to us all.

But...there is the other part of me that almost wants her around for the next four years, just to hear what incredible nonsensical bullshit she thinks up next. Maybe Obama can hire her as his Press Secretary?!
