Copying as political speech

Thanks to Will Bachman for pointing me to this: Sharron Angle wishes to decrease the publicity given to her earlier campaign positions. Harry Reid wishes the opposite. Reid's campaign posts her old website. Angle responds with a takedown notice. The Nevada state Democratic party then posts "highlights" from the old site. Frankly, I think they should have kept the old site up, or at least some screenshots. Hard to deny the positions or claim they're out of context when it's an obvious quote.
