    You obviously have every right to attack my posts on any redicuouls basis you want but to contend that someone who reimbursed the state for her unwarranted reciepts of funds only after his was "charged " with it hardly ranks up there with the actions of Mother Theresa.

    Furthermore to justify her actions based upon Murkowski's poor or possibly illegal behavior is like justifying a ponzi scheme just because Madoff did it.

    Lastly I find it completely laughable that her apologists revere her as a reformer and she is involved with abuse of power from troopgate on.

    Reformers are supposed to reform not swin in the stench of abuse of power. Are some of you guys so blinded by your partisanship that you cannot see the diference bewteen reform and abuse.

    And to reimburse the state for funds that might or might not be questionable under new guidelines but definitely broke no existing guidelines hardly ranks up there with Calamity Jane either.

    Furthermore to justify her actions based upon Murkowski's poor or possibly illegal behavior is like justifying a ponzi scheme just because Madoff did it.
    No, it was pointing out a double standard that has risen since she was tapped for VP and everyone lost their goddamned minds over it. It was to point out that she enjoyed the same benefits as any other governor before her (minus the free plane from the oil companies because she has ethics) and nothing more.

    Lastly I find it completely laughable that her apologists revere her as a reformer and she is involved with abuse of power from troopgate on.
    Which was also dismissed as her having no wrong-doing or abuse of power. I find it completely laughable that her haters gnash their teeth that she is some power hungry whore of babylon when every grievance filed against her has been dismissed from troopergate on.

    Well when you can actually point to a case where it's been proven she abused her power, then we have something to discuss. Otherwise, you're just pissing against the wind and the stench here is all over you.

    Why don't you just do what it is you set out to do and start an "I hate Palin because..." thread and then have your little bitchfest all in one place so we don't waste bandwidth on several threads all meant to do the same asinine **** you intend to do anyway: bitch about Palin and call her names whether it is warranted or not?

    Unfortunately for Palin most of her news headlines seem to be negative. Fortunately for her critics, she's a gift that keeps on giving.

    I'm beginning to doubt she can even get re-elected as governor. A look at her polling numbers shows a steady decline of her approval rating, suggesting that all these allegations are taking it's toll regardless of merit.

    Any politician who skates as close to the edge of the ice as Palin seems to is more than likely to fall in.

    While they found no wrongdoing, I think it shows poor judgment on her part. If I travel for work, I would NEVER EVER EVER think that the company should pay for my husband and/or my son. Hello? Are you kidding me? Yes, I am not a governor, but I think I would have the conscience and logic to think that the state paying for my entire family to travel was inappropriate. The fact that she reimbursed the money says she knows she behaved questionably.

    I don't understand why she would reimburse Alaska the money if she did no wrong. Surely she's not backing down to "liberal criticisms"?

    She doesn't want it used against her when she runs for Prez.

    She doesn't want old news to bite her in the ass if she decides to run for POTUS. Not bad thinking for a dim bulb like her. She must have good handlers besides great legs.

    But they don't charge the state for staying at home or in a house you own like she did. So she pays and it is over with.

    It didn't see anything about a house in the OP. Did I miss it?
