Breaking News: Sarah Palin loves Freedom of Speech more than Freedom of Religion

This is not gonna play well with the religious right, but apparently Sarah Palin believes the 2nd Amendment is more important than the 1st Amendment.

How do we know this? Because Palin has publicly disagreed recently with the very American and fundamental belief that private citizens should be allowed to worship how they please on their own land (google Palin + 9/11 mosque or Palin + refudiate [sic]).

And today we learn that Mama Grizzly is throwing her support behind Dr. Laura. Apparently dropping the N-word 11 times on air is not as insensitive as someone simply practicing their personal religious beliefs out of public sight and sound.

So, if you're scoring at home...using offensive racial term 11 times on the air not insensitive. Building a building out of sight and sound from the WTC site that will house a place of worship, "stabs hearts."

Of course, Palin has different standards for democrats (see Emmanuel, Rahm).

We could engage in a long soliloquy on how philosophically dishonest these contradictions appear. We could point out how it's another example of how racism just seems to follow Palin wherever she goes (What a coincidence that Palin is ok with Dr. Laura's insensitivity to persons of color and not ok with persons of color wishing to exercise their rights). Or we could simply let this post serve as further documentation of the fact that today's leaders on the right feel no need to be consistent with their opinions, because the zealots they're talking to are gonna drink whatever they hand them. We're gonna simply do the latter.

Regardless...we're sure the ACLU will be glad to know about their newest freedom of speech lover.
