What the hell does this even mean? The answer came in response to a question asking her if she endorsed a right to privacy. As a note, this was week two stuff in beginning Con Law at school. We had at least a week or two of debate about the right to privacy and where (or where it does not) come from. The word "penumbra" comes to mind, as do many cases decided by the Supreme Court. I think of Scalia telling us, with his hands in the air, "Where does this right come from? Up there somewhere?"

But what answer does Palin give, after endorsing the right? The following:
individual states can handle what the people within the different constituencies in the 50 states would like to see their will ushered in in an issue like that.

seriously...what does that even mean? It's as though her answers are written by a random answer generator, such as linked to here...
