Great. That's just great. DMV creates a free speech martyr.

Let me just say, I couldn't agree less with the message on the license plate in the following story. I couldn't agree less.

But then, someone over at DMV decides, "let's take a minor annoyance, and turn it into a news story on free speech." For several days. That will probably hit the national press.
Heather Moriah loves the personalized license plates on her silver Prius encouraging the impeachment of President George W. Bush.

But somebody doesn’t agree. And that somebody complained to the state. Now, the South Dakota Division of Motor Vehicles is trying to recall the plates -- which read MPEACHW. And if Moriah doesn’t turn them in voluntarily, the state might send law-enforcement officers to pick them up.

Even so, she’s not immediately inclined to cooperate.

“I don’t think I’m going to play,” Moriah said Thursday afternoon. “The plate isn’t in poor taste. It‘s not sexual in nature or pornographic. To me, a political message should not be considered offensive.”

and...

Moriah has contacted the American Civil Liberties Union, which intends to protest the recall in a letter to the state. Moriah said it’s unlikely the ACLU will pursue legal action, in part because she is planning a move to Pennsylvania in the next couple of months.

Read it all here in the Rapid City Journal.

I suppose this means I can't get a plate that says GOPRULZ.

Well, what really bugs me about this is that the libs are using it to trash South Dakota and Republicans. I am both a South Dakotan and a Republican (who disagrees with the Moriah's message), but I fully support her right to express it howevere she wants. The DMV blew it on this one, and we Republicans who value free speech are being unfairly judged by the libs.
