    Re: AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe

    Honestly, I am shocked that a politician has to pay legal fees out of their own pockets if they win. To me, that just does not seem right. Seems to me, a lot of the lawsuits against Sarah were frivolous at best. So why does she have to pay?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yes, and the principle was that if the cabinet member continues to make an ass of himself, he can be fired.

    The firing of her cabinet officer was 100% within her juridiction and 100% free of any ethical taint.

    Generally speaking, I want ANY governor of ANY state to be able to fire ANY cop who tases his step-son for just about any reason, unless that child actually had a gun or knife in his hand and was intent on committing gross bodily injury to someone.

    So, what you're arguing is that the Governor of Alaska should have ignored the fact that the Alaska state police had a lunatic on it's staff who posed a threat to the safety of the public solely because that one individual was also known to the Governor on a personal level.

    So, let's pretend that the Governor DIDN"T get this guy fired. What would you be saying right now, if that guy tased or shot another child? Hmmmmm?

    The ultimate line under all this is:

    "How DARE anyone reverse, even for a little while, the slide McCain had in the polls and make our Messiah look like he was failing? We're going to punish and punish and chop into little peices and punish the little peices until everyone else can see the Holy Vengeance We will wreak upon those that impede the Divine Will of His Most Holy Messiah."

    That's what the politics of personal destruction is all about, they're destroying Palin as a message to everyone who wants to reach out to the Americans.

    They're still worried that the Messianic Moment might collapse.

    Well, no. No one on your side is demanding anything resembling fairness, ethics, honesty, or even Constitutional government. You're cheering on a bunch of rabid haters who haven't yet managed, in at least fifteen tries, to hang anything on your victim.

    Ethical behavior from our elected officials means not tacking on 300 pages of unread unvoted amendments onto a major bill, the Crap&Trade bill, to pay certain representatives to vote for the bill. Your support of the Messiah lends your support to actions like that. Highly unethical, that.

    Legal behavior would mean that your Messiah would fire his Attorney General who decided to drop a race-related voter intimidation case simply because the president, the Attorny General, and the intimidators were all the same race, since that was clearly an illegal act in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause.

    Perhaps many of the people on the left here who are celebrating and condemning Palin should wait until the results of the ethics probe are revealed before they start cutting the cake. And not surprisingly much of this thread is business as usual pointless Palin bashing.

    Re: AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe

    This obsession with Palin is aboslutely maniacal. Everything she says or does is put under an electron microscope by rabid leftists who can't even be bothered to take a glance at their corrupt, hypocritical Leader.

    Barack Obama flip-flipped on FISA and campaign finance.

    Barack Obama criticized John McCain for hiring lobbyists and solemnly swore that no lobbyist would find a job in his White House. He immediately broke his promise.

    Barack Obama has hired people with serious tax issues to hold positions of major power within government. The most ironic being our Secretary of Treasury, Tim Geithner.

    Before signing the largest domestic spending bill in history, one that nobody read, Obama engaged in a calculated and intense campaign of fear-mongering in order to ram it through the Congress. The predictions he underpinned his fear-mongering with turned out to be absolutely wrong.

    Barack Obama unlawfully fired an independent government investigator charged with uncovering waste, fraud, and corruption in government for purely political purposes.

    Barack Obama supports rendition policies and indefinite detention of enemy combatants.

    All of this is being done by the President of the United States and all you can do is smear the former Governor of Alaska. You people are pathetic.

    You mean Clinton committed a seriouis sexual assualt on a junior employee in direct violation of the federal anti-sexual harassment laws and also committed a felony to try to cover that up.

    That's what you're dismissing so negligently because your focused on the (D), not crimes.

    They're mesmerised by their Messiah and can't take their eyes off him.

    Open eyes do not mean open mind.

    To my knowledge none of the charges got into court therefore there wee no court costs. My best recollection is that virtually all charges and investigations have been administrative. There was some cost for deopositions when Palin went and used State of Alaska funds to have her kids travle but she did not pay that the State did.

    The so called court costs are just PALIN crying wolf and her apologists tring to gannner sympathy for her.

    Your going to have to Google the court costs thing becasue I can't find it.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    And this comment is another pointless partisan attack against Palin that has absolutely no substance.
