Good News on the Palin Front

Civil libertarians, take a breath: according to Reason's Jesse Walker, Gov. Palin didn't try to ban books as mayor of Wasilla. Nor is she an abstinence-only fanatic. Good to hear. I'm a little less scared of Palin now, though her disparaging of civil liberties demonstrates that she hasn't read the Constitution past the Second Amendment. Also, her disparaging remarks about community organizers betray a little bit of cultural intolerance. But at least she won't be burning our books and condoms.

Hat tip to The Agitator.

And here I tend to think it's just the Republicans who spread false fumors about their opposing candidates. Ah, God bless politics.

So now it's only John McCain who once mockingly referred to them as "quote First Amendment rights"? Oh good, I feel much better. :-P
