No one wants to take away your free speech... you moron.
Apparently Sarah Palin is going on Fox news tonight to complain about her first amendment rights.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=439x215760

Here's Sarah:
Anyone who would suggest that we limit the rights to free speech granted under the 18th Amendment whether mine or anybody elses is an enemy to democracy and freedom who would destroy our country,

Sarah,
No one wants to take away your freedom of speech. Really. What they are asking is that you use your right to free speech like a fucking grown up. This isn't a schoolyard and you are not in the third grade. Saying you want to beat up your opponent is really kind of pathetic.

You are supposed to be a representative of the people. You are supposed to represent this country and the people in it. You are supposed to be a responsible adult helping to solve the problems of this nation not some little girl on the playground kicking dirt onto little Barry's shoes because he said you had cooties.

Same goes for you Glen Beck. You are supposed to be a responsible journalist not some little girl on the playground kicking dirt on Little Barry's shoes because he pulled on your braids.

4. She said 18th Amendment???
Edited on Mon Jan-17-11 01:24 PM by elleng
Check this out, THIS is the 18th Amendment to the Constitution:

Section 1. After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.
Section 2. The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.

NEVERMIND!!!

7. If Sarah speaks on an empty Alaskan tundra and nobody else is there to hear her,...
... other than the obvious benefit of that, does she still sound like nails on a chalkboard?

11. Thank Heavens it's a put on.
I don't think even Sarah Palin could be so uniformed as to mistake free speech for Prohibition.

OK, maybe she could be that stupid.

13. They accuse others of the crimes they're up to
and they HATE the taste of their own medicine.
Sarah can't stop. She is a Stepford wife.

18. No, she didn't. The "quote" is from a satirical piece.
Check the original linked OP, and its link.

Edited on Mon Jan-17-11 05:02 PM by Obamanaut
Your knickers are in a knot about something that is totally fiction.

If nothing else, at least edit your subject line - it makes you look like, well, a moro...never mind

Edited on Mon Jan-17-11 05:29 PM by walldude
on edit. After I posted this piece. And you have to admit, it's not like this is so outrageous that she wouldn't do it. Not only that but she Beck and Limbaugh have all screamed about their free speech being taken away.

25. You can tell by seeing Hannity in his muff-diving gear that he would hit Sarah with tough questions.
What a tool! If integrity was cotton, you couldn't get enough from Hannity and Palin to make a T-shirt for a piss ant.
