Worst Person in the World

Yesterday the US Supreme Court ruled (quite correctly) 8-1 on First Amendment grounds in favor of the right of the Westboro Baptist Church to preach their “God hates fags” doctrine in public.

Sarah Palin, as she so often does, had something to tweet about this:

“Common sense & decency absent as wacko ‘church’ allowed hate msgs spewed@ soldiers’ funerals but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square”.

Lets set aside that the “hate msgs” were not in fact spewed at a funeral, but 1,000 feet away from the funeral in question, and go over the sequence of events here:

1. Supreme Court: “It’s okay to say ‘God hates fags’ in public.”

2. Sarah Palin: “but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square”

One more time, just to make sure I got it right:

1. Supreme Court: “It’s okay to say ‘God hates fags’ in public.”

2. Sarah Palin: “but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square”

Sarah Palin, whose rank imbecility is as vast as space and timeless as infinity, today’s Worst Person in the World.
