In this day of microphones left on and video cameras always running one needs to keep their guards up.
Nobody could care less about Common Joes like myself but if you are a high political figure and your mouth runs like a dripping faucet then it is only a matter of time before the real you gets exposed.
under conclusion and cnn/Washington post reported on this back in 08...
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
If Palin wrote a book, for personal gain, using emails she had access to while in office... emails with information not made available to the public... would anyone have a problem with that?
I mean, you know... considering the fact it's illegal in Alaska to do that.
Sure. She was a mayor, highly respected governor, a vice presidential nominee, is a best selling author, a television host and a potential candidate for the US Presidency but you feel she is 'the biggest moron in a generation'. Even allowing for a serious case of advanced hyperbole, it is still incredibly far from the truth.
Seriously, no matter how big of a putz Obama is, that does not subtract one iota from the fact that Palin is the biggest moron to come down the pike in a generation.
You're half right.No matter how much you attack Obama in a thread about Palin, that is not going to change how much of an idiot she is. OK, so I agree with you on Obama. He is an asshole. And Palin is a moron.
We have Obama's record to look to and the issues surrounding his presidency. We can also compare her favorability rate while she was Governor with his as President and see how the two compare. Then we'll have a better understanding of who the "moron' is.

And compare it with what was left in by look at this source that bolds the parts scrubbed out of the network interview:
ABC News Edited Out Key Parts of Sarah Palin Interview | NewsBusters.org
Funny, it makes her sound a lot more like she was making a very simple point about how important our relationship with Russia is and Gibson twisted that into some soundbite that could be used by the mass media spin machine to twist her into looking like some small-minded idiot.
They have to butcher her own words to portray her the way they did and then when Biden says "they shouldn't be building madrasahs, they should be building schools" the mass media does not call the supposedly experienced candidate on the fact madrasahs are schools.

Good to hear, since that's what her former aide is under investigation for. Most people posting in this thread appear to be ok with his possibly having broken the law, and it is truly heartening to find you'd all look the other way for Palin if she where to have done the same thing.
BTW, as an FYI... there were about 8 people in this thread when I brought this up around 7:30PM. I'm just sayin.....

Yep, when you don't like one report, get your allies to issue another one...
The second report was for show, they said/we said, B.S.State Personnel Board investigation
On September 1, Palin essentially filed an ethics complaint against herself, asking the state Personnel Board to review the case. Her lawyer asked the state Legislature to drop its investigation, saying that by state law, the board had jurisdiction over ethics issues. Palin also asked that the Board review the matter as an ethics complaint.
The Personnel Board is a three-member panel appointed by the governor, and confirmed by the legislature. Members serve a six-year term, and not more than 2 members may be of same political party. The three people on the current board were first appointed by Frank Murkowski (R), Palin's gubernatorial predecessor; Palin reappointed one member in 2008. Another member donated $400 to Palin's 2006 campaign for governor. As governor, Palin has the authority to remove members of the board, for cause. The Personnel Board hired Anchorage trial lawyer Timothy J. Petumenos, a registered Democrat who contributed to Palin's opponent for governor in 2006, as its investigator. In 2002, his firm handled the $15 million bond issue for Wasilla's hockey complex, a pet project of then-mayor Palin.
In response to the request from Palin's attorney, French responded that "We're going to proceed. If they want to proceed, that's perfectly within their right but it doesn't diminish our right to do so."
On September 3, Nicki Neal, director of the state Division of Personnel and Labor Relations, said that the board would meet soon in executive session — closed to the public — to begin its work. Palin had asked for the ethics case to be open. Neal said she would check into how that relates to the board meetings. Neal is one of the persons listed as a potential witness in the Branchflower investigation.
She's a vindictive climber whose ambition far exceeds her intellect.
