    Two wrongs don't make a right?

    All this jaw-jacking is actually pretty boring stuff, although it might make you feel good. Trying to make a case for or against without all the facts is a waste of time - and it annoys the pig.

    Let the investigations run their course and argue with the decisions.

    I'm just sayin'...

    2. Why aren't the authorities pursuing this if in fact it was illegal? By authorities I mean whatever commission is charged with investigating these things?


    And what competent investigator releases his finding to the press before he presents them to the government? Come on, this smells like another smear job.

    God I hope these questions haven't been definitively answered already, I'll feel foolish.

    Just in case...watch this...

    Leave it to Lerxt to come up with the breast.... um, I mean best posts at DP. LOL.

    There is no burden of proof on me because I am not the accuser.
    So then you didn't fling these accusations around...

    After this latest little ditty has surfaced one would think that the Palin Apologists would finally wake up and realize that yes at least half of the "allegations" against her were true if not all.
    The topic is Palin's corruption
    Yhe she didn't decide to quit over this one charge there has to be coming. An honest and inocent person would have stayed and fought for the truth so the truth must be the charges against her becasue otherwise why would she run ??
    It's just the tip of the iceberg. This so called reformer is an abuser of power.
    For her cynical attitude and her abuse of power. She is a phoney baloney who will eventually get the punishment that she deserves.
    Noooooo. No accusations there. /sarcasm off

    What I do notice is that in addition to the blatant falsehood that you weren't accusing her of anything, there was nothing of substance in any of it. Just hyperdrama rant and mindless mouthfoaming.

    I merely believe the accusers based upon the way The Palin has behaved in the past with troopergate and the expenses for her kids traveling and the per diem.
    You mean...those things which she was found to be within her power and basically acquitted of?

    The troopergate scheme that she tried to pull off is an abuse of power. To me the abuse of power by an elected or appointed government official is an extremely aggregious act. The right of a citizen not to be the victim of a government abuser goes back to the founding reasons and principles of this great country. The English King George, his appointees and colonial overseers, and the so called parliament were abusers of power against the pre-Independent Americans. We fought a war not to be subjected to that type of abuse. We are supposed to be a nation of laws and laws are supposed to be the way our govenmental processes work. I do not care if that Palin or her appologists say that she abused her power for a good reason e.g a reported bad beahvior by a state police trooper. If that trooper did something bad, illegal, or wrong he needs to go through the legal and proper process get punished for doing something bad but without the interference of the chief government official of the state who happens to be his former sister in law.

    The fact is that what The Palin did was wrong and two wrongs do not make a right.
    Palin did nothing wrong. The Personnel Board even said as much and the complaint was found to be meritless. Like all the others.

    Now see folks...these points won't be addressed because they include things the PDS crowd finds inconvenient: facts. They aren't interested in honest discussion. Unless it's a Palin Hate Circle Jerk, they ain't interested. Because they have no valid arguments.

    But God forbid we actually discuss the woman's record and the FACTS behind her administration. What, oh, what would they have to scream about then?
    Hmmmmmm... maybe how much more qualified for office she is, as opposed to the slime in the White House?

    And why do you think he has fought it so hard.... could there be some corruption there? Something really bad he is hiding?

    The only real qualifications for president laid out in the constitutions are that he be a citizen of the US of a certain age and that he win the vote of the people. So, no, I don't think that's a legitimate point of contrast between them since he did win and she didn't run against him for president.

    She viiolated Alaska Statute 39.52.110

    "However, the report found that Palin, her husband Todd, and her subordinates used pressure and intimidation to try to force the firing of Michael Wooten, beginning before her swearing-in ceremony took place, and therefore broke the law.

    The investigation said she violated Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act, which states, " each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust."
    Of course after extencive investigation it was found that the cop in question tasered his 11 YO child... you guys are pathetic.

    Wooten has a history of reprimands as a trooper, along with a series of personal indiscretions as well. Perhaps the most heinous of these is the one Wooten has admitted to: electrocuting his 11-year-old step son with a taser, allegedly to teach him a lesson. He's also been accused of drinking on the job (which he denies), killing a moose illegaly (which he also denies), and according to this story at DigitalJournal.com threatening to kill Palin's father -- a retired elementary school teacher.

Does that sound like the America you're used to, where innocent until proven guilty doesn't mean **** if you people can hound the innocent into bankruptcy with an endless stream of unfounded slanderous charges instead?

    Your party invented the politics of personal destruction, your party invented the phrase, and your party is still employing those exact tactics to punish people for excercising their First Amendment right to tell the truth about your party.

    You have to be truly proud of all the damage your party has done to America.
    If I could thank you 5 times I would... you'll just have to settle for once.
