I wouldn't go that far. Palin might be ignorant to our Constitution but what she is really ignorant of is how she would be treated in a McCain administration. A president McCain's first order of business will be to send his VP to Siberia for long "negotiations". McCain is good guy who chose to sell out to the party base. Win or lose I think he will regret the campaign he ran. He dishonored himself and exposed his lack of independence.
I actually agree with you 100%. You have also made some other very good points. The fact that she appointed those that just exonerated her is accurate.

Almost as amazing as the fact that Janet Reno refused to investigate the illegal campaigning done by Al Gore during the Clinton years, isn't it?

But this won't stop the Nazi left from hating her. I also see that a Nazi radio host wished death on Joe the Plumber. I love how "tollerant" they are, as long as it is their view point only.

Ain't it too late for this news to get out? I smell a rat here. If McCain lost and the country goes to hell, the press will forever be blamed for crime against the American people like this one.

If progressives could survive 8 years under a brain-damaged murderer, knuckledraggers will be able to survive four years under someone with basic intelligence, empathy and a better than rudimentary knowledge of how the government works.

Gee. She was vindicated by a 3 member panel appointed by who? Oh, yea! They were appointed by Sara Palin.

What an unbiased panel! Give me a break!

So the point of your post is that Palin is cut from the same cloth?

The ex brother in law deserved to be fired. Monegan should be fired for sticking by a rougue cop.

I wonder if he is related to Drew Perterson.

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.
Please review your facts. Khalidi has never been a member of the PLO and McCain has given him millions. The McCan'ts refuse to look at McCain's ties to people like Keating and Liddy - these are real bad guys that he had real relationships with. It will all be moot in about 10 hours when McCain and Palin can fade away into political obscurity. The GOP will finally realize that saving the party will mean dropping the extreme right nut jobs.

Suddenly, the media gets a story out too late to have an impact after trashing Palin for months.

In tems of the political spectrum, Nazi's are on the far right with the rest of the fascists. Just turn to your left and you will see them standing next to you.

So the elected officials in the Alaska legislature said she violated ethics rules but the people that Palin appointed to the personnel board said she didn't. I believe the legislature.

The "Dimocrats" didn't start a war. Your murderous hero did. The blood will never wash from your hands.
