Sarah Wants to Make Criticism of Her a Constitutional Wrong

My head hurts. Sarah Palin says that the free press questioning her intentions and statements violates her first amendment rights as an American. The problem is that the First Amendment states that the government (and this includes people in government seeking higher positions within it) needs to allow free, peaceful exchange of thoughts, associations, and grievances. And the government needs to stay clear of religion.

Maybe Palin’s confusing us with a religious state? Or maybe she read the first amendment upside down.

Read about it in the Huffington Post.

Read about the First Amendment here at Salon and here at Find Law.
