Out: 1st Amendment
In: Confiscating Anti-Obama Signs (Updated - Video Added)

Too good to pass up on linking. If I've got the story right, Chip Harrison was pulled over by an Oklahoma City police officer because he had a sign reading, "Abort Obama Not the Unborn" sign in it. The sign was confiscated by the officer who apparently thought it was some kind of threat on the President's life.

How any one with an IQ over 100 could construe that as a threat is mystifying.

In the end the police gave Chip his sign back with a hearty apology. But the Secret Service searched his home any way to make sure he wasn't part of a "hate" group.

All's well that ends well, I guess. But, come on, isn't it pretty obvious the message the sign was supposed to convey wasn't a threat on the President's life?

Thanks to J
