Joe Miller, a lawyer, is running on a platform premised on his alleged love of the Constitution. He may want to re-read that part about the Bill of Rights.
And in the larger context, I can’t help but wonder: is this what the Tea Party crowd has in mind for America’s future? In their version of “limited government,” should we expect candidates to hire private security forces to detain reporters who ask them about their background?

Is this their vision of American “freedom”?
