If you protest Sarah Palin, your neighbors have a talk with you.
America, WAKE UP
Last time I checked, mangling effigies WAS PROTECTED EFFING SPEECH
2 arrested for hanging Obama effigy on Ky. campusAssociated Press Writer-
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- A University of Kentucky student and another man were arrested Thursday, accused of hanging a life-sized likeness of Barack Obama from a tree on the campus.
The incident was one of several in recent weeks involving effigies of the presidential candidates or their running mates. No charges have been filed in four other cases that have made national headlines.
UK Interim Police Chief Joe Monroe said the men "expressed remorse for a stunt that had gotten out of hand."
WeHo Homeowners Pull Down Sarah Palin EffigyWEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (CBS) ― An effigy of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been taken down from a West Hollywood home, after the homeowner discussed the situation with the city's mayor.
The mannequin hanging by a noose was part of a larger Halloween display that included an effigy of John McCain coming out of the chimney surrounded by fake flames. The display has drawn national attention and a visit from the Secret Service, which decided there was no threat.
Earlier in the afternoon, neighbors covered up the Palin mannequin with sheets, in what was described as a friendly protest.
I hope thse college kids find some hotshot who is going to take this disorderly conduct charge and ram it and a back breaking monetary problem to the Fayette County Kentucky administration.
A free speech college stunt, perpetrated about a well known public figure is now ANOTHER example of how the minions of the one have been inculcated to think. These morons don't know Obama, they are not trying to curry favor with Obama, they are looking at the behavior Obama has modeled, and are just following right along.
The polls still indicate a lead for Mr Obama.
His administration is not even and administration elect, and we have abuses.
Let's see if he has the balls to act within the Constitution and ENFORCE the document he might be sworn to protect and get those kids out of jail.
Or maybe he still wants to break free of those contstraints, eh?

Dear Governor Palin
By Jane Gilvary, For The Bulletin
Dear Gov. Palin,
I am writing to you to apologize. I apologize for the way the mainstream media has treated you since Sen. John McCain chose you as his running mate. The scrutiny you have endured during this campaign is unimaginable, but you have handled it quite well. Sens. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden have been given free passes from the mainstream media while you have had to defend and explain everything from faith, to teen pregnancy, to foreign policy. I often wonder what it might be like for your children and your husband to watch the evening news and to hear how the leftists of mainstream news-making portray you as a "right wing nut job" whose only talent is shooting moose and riding snowmobiles. It must be frightening for your children to see news reports out of Philadelphia that protestors actually made T-shirts describing you in an abhorrently derogatory manner.
I apologize for the way Hollywood has slandered your name and portrayed you as a provincial hockey mom with a funny accent. I apologize that they fail to see your good nature, your intelligence, your forthrightness, and your ability to wear many hats as you balance civil service with family service.
I apologize for celebrities like Matt Damon, Pam Anderson and Madonna who pontificate on their world stage and claim to know more about government than you do. I am sorry that they think their celebrity status and a few starring roles gives them political omniscience. Your upright life has shined a light in places of darkness for them. In you they see morality, class, and dignity - things they don't have; therefore, they upbraid you any chance they get.
I apologize for the main stream media accusing you of banning books, asking you "gotcha" questions, and questioning who paid for your wardrobe. Instead, they should be asking you what you think of Barack Obama's links to Fannie Mae and the current mortgage crisis, or how drilling in ANWAR might ease our dependence foreign oil from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Iran. They should ask you what you think of Palestinians setting up phone banks in Gaza to call Americans and urge them to vote for Barack Obama. They should ask you what you think of Hamas - a known terrorist, anti-American, anti-Israeli organization - supporting Sen. Obama.
I apologize that the mainstream media throws softball questions to Sen. Obama and then investigates who paid for your clothes or pries into your daughter's personal life. I apologize that the issues aren't at issue in this election, and it is largely because of news outlets like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and The New York Times.
I apologize that the mainstream media considers you a cog in a political machine. I consider you an intelligent woman, a patriot, a Christian and a wonderful person who would be ready to lead America should she be called upon to do so.
You are everything that true conservatives have been waiting for since Ronald Reagan and I apologize that America seems to hate you for that. You support traditional marriage and understand the gender roles of men and women. You defend my right to own a firearm to protect my home. You choose life. You believe in a strong national defense and your son serves in the U.S. Army. You believe a limited government serves its people better than one that over-taxes and overspends. You believe in strong families.
I am confident that you would uphold the Constitution and serve well as vice president of my country. I apologize that America continues to condemn you for these things. I apologize that liberals and elitists are frightened by all of these wonderful things about you.
Thank you, Sarah Palin, for putting America first.
Very truly yours,
