Sarah Palin tweeted a scathing reply to the Supreme Court's decision that the First Amendment protected the Westboro Baptist Church from being sued after they picketed the funeral of a dead marine. While I would never attempt to justify what the Westboro Baptist Church does, I do think Palin reveals her lack of understanding of the Constitution in her tweet. For someone who is so adament about protecting individual liberties, it seems extraordinarily hypocritical to deny those liberties to a group just because you find them disagreeable. It makes me wonder if Palin has ever studied Colonial History or read the Federalist Papers.
