Palin's Swimsuit Videos Removed...

Videos of Sarah Palin from the Miss Alaska beauty pageant in 1984 are being taken down from YouTube as fast as they are being put up. Well, for one, it is called a swimsuit, not a bikini like the video I caught taken down called it.

 

Others are still up as I post this. I wonder how long they will stay up.

 

I'm not sure that seeing a potential vice president competing in a beauty pageant makes me comfortable to vote for her to be in a position on the international potlicial stage. It also makes me think that we can't control anything anymore, from political communications to our own privacy.

 

Who is taking them down, and why? Can information be controlled anymore? Is it a political matter, a copyright matter?
