    Max Read — Our ongoing story arc in Libya has been really tough on Republicans, who hate black presidents but love bombing Muslims, so we're glad to see Senator/tease Lindsey Graham (R - S.C.) back in his element, wondering if maybe this whole "constitution" thing has kind of run its course:

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a military lawyer, is the first member of Congress to say the legislature needs to explore the possibility, however unlikely, of limiting some kinds of free speech—like Terry Jones' Quran burning —that help America's enemies.

    "I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war," he told CBS's Bob Schieffer on "Face the Nation."

    "During World War II, we had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy," Graham said, adding that he wanted to do "anything we can to push back here in America against acts like this that put our troops at risk."
