Dream Ticket: Palin—Prejean 2012

Carrie Prejean stands up to the Lavender Mafia bullies and their media enablers.

“I exercised my freedom of speech, and I was punished for doing so. This should not happen in America.”

Precisely. In under 20 words, Ms. Prejean proves she already knows more about the U.S. Constitution than Barack Obama.

William F. Buckley famously quipped, “I would rather be GOVERNED by the first hundred names in the Boston phone book than by the Harvard faculty.” Listening to supermodel Kathy Ireland articulate her pro-life convictions, I’d extend Buckley’s thesis and suggest we’d be better off governed by beauty pageant contestants and supermodels than by members of Congress.

Of course I’m being facetious in suggesting the 22-year old Prejean as a viable Vice Presidential candidate. I’m sure she knows as well as I do that she isn’t old enough to qualify for the job.

Like I said, she knows more about the Constitution than Barack Obama.

    “It undermines the Constitutional rights for which my grandfather fought for”

    She nails the substance, but she totally Biden’d the form.

  2. Herself says:

    The Constitution limits the government, not private citizens. If a private citizen wants to take her on they also have protected free speech to do that. The government can’t stop it. The speech in response may be ugly, vile, vulgar and rude, but private citizens have the right to do it. Other private citizens can take that person on, etc., etc., until everyone has had their say and moves on the next excoriation du jour.

    Rights aren’t license. Rights don’t protect you from being challenged for your opinions, nor the consequences of private-sector censor.

    Exercised rights are often horrible. If they were always nice and pretty, there’d be no need to articulate them because they’d be easy to support.

    She got it flatly wrong. She may speak and others may speak against her. That’s not a bug, that’s a feature. She may be punished in the public square for her opinions, because others have the same rights as her, and may choose to exercise their free speech to excoriate her opinions. The only thing that people cannot do is slander or libel her, but if they do, her recourse is the civil courts, not the criminal courts.

    In America, the rights her grandfather (and the grandfathers of others) fought for is the right to express an opinion… even if those opinions attack a person of principle.

    How someone came to the conclusion that “free speech” means that you can say what you want, but no one else can comment (or express a contrary opinion) is odd. Others have free speech to speak against you. That seems so patently obvious. Exercising rights have consequences. The government cannot punish you for it, but the public square can make your life a living Hell… as she found out. Right or wrong, free speech endures.

    You are 100% correct. As Yogi Berra would say, “I made a wrong mistake.” Chalk it up to my senility or Ms. Prejean’s hotness.
