Quote of the Day: Shannyn Moore

Sarah Palin, with her seven million dollar book advance, has now gotten suit-threat happy, threatening bloggers with legal action (in particular Shannyn Moore) if they don’t stop expressing their negative opinions about her. Today, Moore replied bravely in defense of her First Amendment rights:

The governor’s massive overreaction -on the Fourth of July no less- should make any reasonable person wonder what’s wrong with her.  The Lady protests way too much.  Eventually we’ll all find out why she really walked off the job. Sarah Palin is a coward and a bully.  What kind of politician attacks an ordinary American on the Fourth of July for speaking her mind?  What’s wrong with her?  The First Amendment was designed to protect people like me from the likes of people like her.  Our American Revolution got rid of kings.  And queens, too.  Am I jacked-up? You betcha. . . . Sarah Palin, if you have a problem with me, then sue me.  Shannyn Moore will not be muzzled!

    “Americans everywhere were celebrating our most sacred national holiday. . .” Sacred really? It’s weird how Americans co-opt the language of religion to describe the celebration of a revolution where they “got rid of kings. And queens, too.” No they didn’t, not really; Americans created their own royalty: the president and the first lady and insalubrious rock stars/movie stars.

    Veronica,

    Good points. Thanks for the song. As for the “madjewess” question, I saw her posts as sort of a thread storm passing by. I really didn’t want to inflame her further by saying more about her far right racist nuttiness (which is why I’m saying this to you here and not in the thread where she was posting). I figured she’d drift away without assistance, and she appears to have. When people spout Holocaust denial or racism I try to catch it and delete it. If she starts showing up again ranting—I’ll start deleting her. It’s not always an easy judgment call—guaging people’s sincerity and sanity, or whether they’ll calm down.

    Lastly, I don’t think being pro-Israel entails being anti-Palestinian (if that is what you were getting at).

    Oh, and I added a couple of book reviews recently (on your suggestion from a previous post).

    —Santi
