    I think it's worked out better for her this way, and better for the country. She is being a great help with her endorsements
    and everything else she does.

    Who is insulting her? Why would she accept payment for giving tribute to her uncle?

    As for the ethics claims that were made against her that she had to pay - that was all her doing. It was my understanding that Palin thought that McCain's campaign was going to pick up the tab, chose to not make them Alaska's responsibility and this way the hearings would not be "public". It didn't turn out that way.

    Van Flein initially was hired by the state under a $95,000 contract to represent Palin in a legislative investigation of Troopergate.

    At issue was whether Palin pushed for the firing of her ex-brother-in-law, state Trooper Mike Wooten, then fired public safety commissioner Walt Monegan when the trooper stayed on the job.

    But just after Van Flein was tapped, Palin landed on the national GOP ticket. Van Flein said the investigation "became part of the national campaign strategy against the governor." He never billed the state.

    Granted many of the cases were frivolous, but many of them were not, such as this other one. And accusations that they all came from Dems is another con fib.

    Palin last month reimbursed the state more than $8,000 for travel expenses for nine trips, accompanied by her children, after the state paid for them. Another inquiry led to some new ethics training for a staff member.

    McLeod, a registered Republican, has filed several complaints since Palin announced her decision to step down, including the one regarding gift disclosures. She has also filed two lawsuits, including one regarding whether it was appropriate for state business to be discussed using private e-mail addresses.

    Ethics complaints follow Palin - CNN.com
    Did you read the post from the Anchorage paper listing all those so called ethics violations and their disposition? Sounds like a lot to do about nothing. If any of that had happened in Chicago they would have been laughed out of town.

    Not sure why the attacks on Palin, what is she running for? And the fact is that 20 of her endorsements won their primary elections. She has some credibility with a lot of people. Seems to me that people ought to focus more on what is going on with our elected officials in D.C. vs. a non elected person exercising her first amendment rights.

    that is a good question, why would she accept payment for giving tribute to her uncle and where is the proof she is being paid?

    I guess the ones where she was found guilty were the ones that people were interested in, made the papers. The ones where she was found guilty are not a lot do about nothing. You either abuse your power or you don't, and she was found to have abused her power.

    Not sure why the attacks on Palin, what is she running for?
    It was no attack, just refuting your claim that all the cases were dismissed, or did you forget you brought it up?

    And the fact is that 20 of her endorsements won their primary elections.
    Woohoo! Are you saying they weren't worthy of winning without her "endorsement"?

    She has some credibility with a lot of people.
    Yes, unfortunately, there were a lot of people that voted for Bush, twice!

    Seems to me that people ought to focus more on what is going on with our elected officials in D.C. vs. a non elected person exercising her first amendment rights.
    When a person is causing division and spewing lies that hurt what the elected officials in DC are doing, they deserve to be put in place.

    I posted the Anchorage paper review of the Palin ethics violations. Why is there a disconnect between what was reported there and what you posted? I suggest you stop reading leftwing sites unless you don't care about credibility.

    I voted for Bush twice because the alternative made me sick, Gore and Kerry. I have no problem with the results actually generated but I do have a problem with the misrepresentaion of those results. Facts seem to always get in the way of personal opinions many of whom never do any research and buy the rhetoric of others.

    I would love to hear those so called lies and then compare them to the real lies of this Administration. Apparently actual results don't matter so it is better to focus on those that really don't matter. Give me specific lies that anyone else has claimed that trump these,

    "I inherited a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit",
    "The economic stimulus plan will keep unemployment from exceeding 8%,
    "I will halve the deficit by the end of my first term",
    "The stimulus plan has created or saved 3.5 million jobs",
    "economic growth will exceed 4% this year"
    "the healthcare bill will cut the deficit"

    I could go on but what's the use?

    Now those are real lies that affect your pocket book. Trump those with lies of non elected officials

    Implying means nothing. Until you have proof its as hollow as the claim itself.

    By the way, looks like my apology was in error, she won those cases but as usual those against here bought the initial claims.
    It could be that hard right candidate is winning, is because there was a parental notification measure on the ballot.
