Palin’s First Amendment

Soundbite Sarah is out with another gem today talking about how the press is violating her First Amendment right to free speech.  Palin was interviewed by conservative radio talk show host Chris Plante, and the show aired Friday morning in that elitist capital of the world, Washington, DC.

Obama: White Voters Didn’t Get the Memo

Obama 51

McCain 47

McCain’s number in the Rasmussen poll has gone from 47-46-47 on three successive days. The phenomenon well might be an artifact of rounding with a fraction of a point explaining the fluctuation across the three days.  Rasmussen observes:

McCain has been solidifying support, (but) Obama has not lost ground.  This is the 36th straight day that Obama’s support has been between 50% and 52%.
