McCain-Palin Sued For Incitement

A 66-year-old Kansas City granny sues McCain-Palin for the promotion of hate speech. Her complaint alleges, inter alia, that the McCain campaign "intentionally, recklessly and irresponsibly portrayed Barack Obama as un-American, a terrorist by association . . . not like us, and a non-white individual."

The long-in-the-tooth litigator equates Barack Obama to a "modern-day JFK" and fears for his safety. However, she offers a quid pro quo: voluntary dismissal of the claim in return for an unqualified denouncement of these "death threats" by McCain-Palin coupled with a stern warning that the "intruders" issuing these threats will be excluded from future rallies.

Of course it's frivolous, but give granny credit: she paid the $350 filing fees.
