    No.

    It was about the sexual assault on Paula Jones, in which Lily Waver and Rapist Clinton had her hauled up to his hotel room and asked her to "kiss it".

    THAT was the deposition in which LWRC committed perjury.

    That was a matter of serious national interest.

    Disagree.

    It worked on Quayle.

    The anti-smear campaign has been successful for Al Gore. Only the people with their eyes open see that he's an idiot and a liar.

    The media pressed McCain's position....until he got the nomination, because he was a sure loser.

    The media would leave Palin alone if they thought she wasn't going to have enough influence to derail their efforts at kingmaking.

    Re: AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe

    For any interested in more than mouth-foaming rants, here is Sarah Palin's response to the report:

    I find the notion that I have taken any action pertaining to the legal defense trust fund misguided and factually in error. I am informed that this fund was created by experienced attorneys in DC and was modeled after other similar funds established for senators and others. The fund itself was not created by me nor is it controlled by me. Neither I nor my lawyer has received a penny from this fund, and I am informed the Trustee was withholding any action or payment pending final resolution with the Personnel Board. This is the hallmark of legal compliance and prudent conduct.

    In short, I have not 'acted' relative to the defense fund and it is misleading to say I have. I have no doubt that the Trust will welcome guidance by the Board, as do we all, but it is my understanding that this matter was not resolved and the complainant's violation of law has served to mislead the public and prejudice a fair review of this matter.

    Sarah Palin
    Seems to me that this just going to be yet another false ethics charge that the media will run with up until the point it is proven false. Then they'll just drop the story short of reporting that the complaint was without merit. Like all the other meritless complaints.

    Re: AP NewsBreak: Palin implicated in ethics probe

    it appears to have been a very even investigation
    it was properly determined that the governor improperly used her public office to solicit funds for personal benefit. she should not do that
    but neither should she need to in order to defend actions she has taken as a public office holder:
    The investigator, Thomas Daniel, sided with Palin in her frustration with having to defend herself against a barrage of ethics complaints. He suggested that Alaska lawmakers may need to create a law that reimburses public officials for legal expenses to defend complaints that end up being unfounded.
    what has been found is a void in alaskan government. palin, nor any other state official should have to spend personal money for legal defense of the actions taken in their public capacity
    alaska should cure that void and then palin would no longer have a need to access the improperly solicited legal defense funds

    Palin Derangement Syndrome. Characterized by spontaneous unsubstantiated rants and hurling of vile insults whenever the name Sarah Palin comes up. Also known to cause spontaneous regression of vocabulary, crippling the subject with the inability to do anything more than throw childish monikers about. Is often coupled with a strong case of fact avoidance and physical symptons like a thick foam flowing from the mouth.
