Psst, politicians: Your witty postings on Facebook aren't private. A Democratic candidate for state representative in New Hampshire is learning this all-important lesson after weighing in on comments over the Ted Stevens plane crash with this gem: "Just wish Sarah and Levy (sic) were on board." Of course, state Republicans didn't waste much time pouncing on Keith Halloran, notes NowHampshire.

“Mr. Halloran’s outrageous comments are a new low, even by the standards of the New Hampshire Democrat Party,” said GOP spokesman Ryan Williams. “His publicly stated death wish for Governor Palin and her family is abhorrent, and has no place in public discourse." They want an apology from him and a denunciation from top Democrats. (More Sarah Palin stories.)
