QUOTE OF THE DAY....From Sarah Palin, unclear on the concept of freedom of speech:

"If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations, 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."

The First Amendment protects politicians against attacks from the press? I guess Palin's not an originalist after all. She's an Orwellian.
