The latest WTF? salvo
fired by protesting Tea Partiers in Nevada and their zealous if
ill-informed leader Sarah Palin: While they cherish and quote and wave
signs duplicated their much-cherished and oft-quoted Constitution,
clearly the last thing any of us needs at such a time is a leader who is
a....Constitutional lawer?

"Our vision for America is anchored in time-tested truths that the
government that governs least governs best, that the Constitution
provides the path to a more perfect union... In these volatile times
when we are a nation at war, now
more than ever is when we need a commander-in-chief, not a
constitutional law professor lecturing us from a lectern."
