Oh goody, another petty reprisal by a Republican! Who would have thought? Ever hear of "due process"?

This is family business and better left out of view Gov. Palin is awesome and I think right to get the rogue cop fired for using a taser in non-police work.

fortunately for democrats,these kinds of accusations will never occur since their candidates have never managed much more than their personal budgets

The so-called trooper, Mike Wooten, was married to Palin's sister.

He was suspended 10 days for threatening to kill Palin's father. He is also alleged to have tasered his 11-yr old stepson.

A would-be ASSASSIN and CHILD-ABUSER.

I'm sure the MSM, aka The LIARS(Liberal Intelligentsia And Rich Socialists) Club, will try to turn this individual into a sympathetic
figure.

Wow, the AP comes through with another slanted "news" report. The story is rife with dismissive insinuations - that the accuser is a blogger (and presumably therefore not trustworthy); that it is a "political he-said she-said." The real capper is this: "Palin steadfastly denies the allegations, and with her signature resolve, said she welcomes the investigation.'Hold me accountable,' she challenge (sic) her critics."

Very inspirational. But there is more to this story than the AP reports. Palin has already had to retract previous statements after contradictory evidence emerged showing that she lied. In fact, in her brief period in the limelight, she's already established a pattern of public lies. It's beginning to look like her days as the Republican VP nominee are numbered. Which is a shame, as she really seems to embody Republican values: abuse of power, hypocrisy and lies.

And don't forget.....her 17 year old daughter is pregnant. Talk about pro-choice. The Republican choice for Vice President is shaping up to be trailer park trash.

Anyone notice that she stated that she didn't think he was doing enough to battle rural alcoholism and the solution was to attempt to transfer him to the state alcohol control board?
"Monegan was fired in July, after he declined a transfer to become the director to the state's alcohol control board."
+
"Palin at a news conference said Monegan wasn't a team player, didn't do enough to fill trooper vacancies and battle alcohol abuse issues in rural Alaska."

Not properly vetting Mrs. Palin is another example of poor judgement by John McCain.

The Frontiersman, Palin's hometown newspaper, published an editorial saying that Palin owes the public a better explanation that "answers more questions than it raises."

Are you kidding me? If Obama can survive Wrightgate, Rezkogate and Ayersgate this lady will walk away from this fine.

Lets not forget that we didn't find out that Obama's buddy Rezko didn't Help him with his under the table house deal, no one heard the racist Rev. "God Damned America" Wright's sermons (Or know that Obama was a member of that hate church for 20 years), And we sure as HeII didn't know that William Ayers the U.S capital bombing terrorist gave Obama his start in politics, served on a board with him and the two are friends, until after Obam was rtunning for president.

What has come up on Palin is nothing compared to what we have found out about Obama in the last 6 months. You leftwing nutjobs think that she is going to quit? she's just going to go away? Not a chance. Your boy the Messiah really screwed the pooch by not picking Hillary and now McCain will win.

It's already been churned, Dave, and nothing came of it. Your 'rock star' has these stories and she's barely out of the gate. Churn away, but it comes off sounding desperate.

Nothing came of it because the media swept them under the carpet. If anyone is "Deserate" it's the Dems. They are calling for her to resign? Don't think so. We will make history with the first woman VP.

just finished reading the trite reading assignments from here and the Free Press in Detroit. All I can say is keep on writing and believing the same things and you'll all end up the same way. Run down and unemployed, still blaming "the establishment". Open up your senses and listen or read a variety of sources so you can learn the truth.
