    Palin pre-empts state report, clears self in probe

    I'm stunned at the audacity and sheer ham-handedness (no pun intended) of this. Even if Palin is 100% innocent, how ridiculous is it for any politician facing an ethics charge to say "I've done a thorough investigation of myself and found myself innocent"?

    By MATT APUZZO, Associated Press Writer 25 minutes ago

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Trying to head off a potentially embarrassing state ethics report on GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report Thursday that clears her of any wrongdoing.

    Sen. John McCain's running mate is the subject of a legislative investigation into whether she abused her power as governor by firing her public safety commissioner. The commissioner, Walter Monegan, says he was dismissed in July for resisting pressure from Palin's husband, Todd Palin, and numerous top aides to fire state trooper Mike Wooten, Palin's former brother-in-law.

    Lawmakers are expected to release their own findings Friday. Campaign officials have yet to see that report — the result of an investigation that began before she was tapped as McCain's running mate — but said the investigation has falsely portrayed a legitimate policy dispute between a governor and her commissioner as something inappropriate.[/QUOTE]

    It's an arrogance born of a small town mindset--that once in power you can use that power however you like cuz outside of the town no one is watching you.

    Exactly. If you've lived in a small town, you know **** like this happens all the time. Luckily for my town, we've had good mayors, it's just everyone else who hasn't known how to responsibly wield their power.

    The She-Bush...lol



    Where were you when I needed you
    Well you could not be found
    What can I do, oh I believed in you
    You're running me around
    Well you can take it as a warning
    Or take it anyway you like
    It's the lightning, not the thunder
    You never know where it's gonna strike

    Our love's in jeopardy, baby, ooh

    ROFLMAO that is one of the funniest things ever! :D


    The McCain camp clears Gov. Palin of all wrong-doing in TrooperGate.


    Well that's good enough for me, because clearly they are unbiased and would have no motivation to come up with such a glowing report if it were not true! ;) :rolleyes: ;)






    :D

    In light of this report, I decided to do an internal investgation. I've concluded that I do not drink too much, have a gambling problem, and am not, by any definition, addicted to internetz porn. I feel so good to be vindicated, I think I'll have a cocktail, rub one out, and play some poker on line. It's a new day!
