A closer look at the life and career of John McCain reveals a disturbing record of recklessness and dishonesty.

I'm betting Ms. "Pitbull with lipstick" is going to get exposed for the power abuser she is. Even "Joe six-pack" isn't going to like her they find out about her trying to use her position as gov. to get an ex-brother in-law fired from his job!

Even if she is cleared and totally innocent (questionable), she still is NOT qualified to sit a heartbeat away from the Presidency. McCain's big decision was a loser.

The liberal press jumps all over this, but does nothing about Obama's close relation with Pentagon Bomber William Ayers or PLO Terrorist Rashid Khalidi. I guess that's not important seeing it pertains to Obama. Obama could be a child molester and the press and his supporters would still give him a pass.

I don't know how it's done up there, but I guess the Supreme Court Justices in Alaska don't have to worry about Palin firing them.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-hah!

Me thinks she'll need more than lipstick to get out of this one! Too bad it probably won't be released until late tomorrow given the time difference in Alaska.

Just a political gambit by a group of Obama supporters who were all photographed at Obama headquarters in Alaska. Typical Democrat dirty trick aided and abetted by their akolytes in the media. Shakespeare said it: "Sound and fury signifying nothing."

I'm sure she said "drop it" to her husband. Does he not look like the type of guy who if he were mad at you break your headlights with a baseball bat? She needs to go back to Alaska where I'm sure everyone there now thinks she is a wacked out nut job. She will not be re elected there either!

Funny that this investigation started long before anyone outside Alaska had ever heard of Sarah Palin and before she had been named as McCain's VP.

This was NOT an invention of the Obama campaign, and in fact the vote in the Alaska legislature to investigate was unanimous.

When Sarah Palin was an unknown, she and her family were perfectly happy to let the investigation go forward and let the chips fall where they may. But ever since she became VP nominee and her name became a household word, the national Republican Party has been trying to shut down the investigation.

Makes me wonder why they're so scared of the people finding out what really happened. I for one would like the facts to come out no matter whether they wind up exonerating Palin or otherwise.

What about Sarah Palin's husband's membership in the Alaskan Independence Party?
That's the political party that wants to succeed from the United States of America!!

succeed from the United States.....are ya sure she didn't say she wanted Alaska to succeed in the United States?????

NOW....if she wanted Alaska to secede from the US..... she and McCain REALLY have my vote, as many states can't really SUCCEED under a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT that has stripped them of their RIGHTFUL POWER AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!!!!

And has systematically dumbed-down (grab mirror...look directly into it....you're it Barbara!!!) America's electorate to a point where...

The trooper, from all accounts, sounds like scum. If I were in a position to do so, I would have got rid of him--even if it was personal.

How many people wouldn't do what Palin did in order to help out a family member?

I have to admit that my guilty pleasure this election cycle has been the cyclonic twisting in the wind that passes for full throated endorsement of the Grampy McSame and Caribou Barbie ticket. <laughing>

It has become especially amusing watching the racism by proxy peeled back to reveal itself as small-minded, low information voters lose their thinly cast, cheap contact paper veneer of civilization. Thank you one and all for your hard work and dedication. <laughing>

The question is not whether the guy was scum, but whether the law was followed in getting rid of him.

How far will these right wingnuts go? That type of conduct should have been denounced by the Republican candidates as unacceptable under any circumstance.

hope you and the other posters are kidding with these reponses...

"...get professional help..."

"grampie mcsame and caribou barbie..."

not one rebuttal to 6-7 scandals that would have knocked McCain out of the race and put him in JAIL by now!!!

no...just stupid, mindless bs!!!

hope you enjoy what you are going to get if, by theft or by ignorance, you actually put this terrorist-sympathising, illegal donation accepting, voter fraud allowing, Fannie Mae profiteer into the White House...

where Bill Ayers will actually get to BLOW UP THE PLACE FROM THE INSIDE THIS TIME!!!

I think he picked her because he misunderstood when someone told him he should "tap" the gov of Alaska...
