    I believe you are correct. It's coming back to haunt her.

    And if there is nothing?

    I seriously believe Palin didn't do anyhting wrong, and looking at it at face-value, there is nothing to suggest wrong-doing accept Palin just happens to related to one of the...whoever it is... Guy did wrong and got punished.

    This whole spring I was extremely depressed, and had felt left out in the media. My whole (white) family was having a field day when I got home from school. The first thing my dad said to me was, "You hear what that nigger's pastor said?"

    Like I have said before, race is the only thing that will get me worked up or the least bit angry. And I was distraught during that whole Wright "controversy".
    What are you worried about ?- it didn't change your mind about him- and he's still ahead in the polls.

    Let me get this straight. This Democrat:

    Hollis French - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Who has said things like this:

    "It's likely to be damaging to the Governor's administration," said Senator Hollis French
    "The Governor first issued a blanket denial but now she's had to back down and that's a problem," said French. "She has a credibility problem," he said.
    French says the McCain campaign failed to contact any of the Senators involved in the investigation during the vetting process of Gov. Palin.

    "If they had done their job they never would have picked her," said French. "Now they may have to deal with an October surprise," he said, referring to the scheduled release Oct. 31 of the committee's final report.
    Is the guy in charge of issuing an "unbiased" and "bipartisan" report about what happened?

    Sure doesn't sound like he's made up his mind or has an ax to grind.

    He's also an open Obama supporter:

    And has been attacking McCain:

    I haven't done many criminal investigations yet, but I don't think you're supposed to speculate in the media about the target's guilt.

    I think what's going to be funniest and most ironic is people are going to come in here and likely say "Yeah, he may seemed biased or maybe he is connected to Obama and against McCain...but that doesn't change the fact he can act impartial and make a judgement based on the facts without his own biases".

    Yes. One and the same:

    Hollis S. French II is a Democratic member of the Alaska Senate, representing the M district since 2003. He is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    French is a graduate of the University of Alaska, Anchorage (B.A. English) and of Cornell Law School (Juris doctor). Before being elected to the state Senate, French was an assistant district attorney. He has climbed Mt. McKinley to the summit twice. [1]

    In 2008, French was appointed by his fellow senators to head an investigation into charges that Gov. Sarah Palin "abused her office to get the Alaska public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, fired." [2]
    Who has said things like this:

    "It's likely to be damaging to the Governor's administration," said Senator Hollis French


    Yes......

    "The Governor first issued a blanket denial but now she's had to back down and that's a problem," said French. "She has a credibility problem," he said.

    I haven't seen this one, but......Did Palin first issue a blanket denial? Did she switch horses? If yes, then Palin does have a credibility problem. Why would you think otherwise?


    French says the McCain campaign failed to contact any of the Senators involved in the investigation during the vetting process of Gov. Palin.

    "If they had done their job they never would have picked her," said French. "Now they may have to deal with an October surprise," he said, referring to the scheduled release Oct. 31 of the committee's final report.


    I haven't seen this one either, but I imagine as an Alaskan Senator, he's much more aware of Palin issues than either you and I are.

    I'll have to wait and see..........do you have links to either of your two quotes? I'd like to read the articles.

    I'm not reading anything about an ax to Grind, RNYC. I'm reading that he believes Palin has a credibility problem. I'm reading that he doesn't believe she was vetted as she should have been.

    Do you think he's alone in his way of thinking? Come on.....


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    And I'm imagining that as a Democrat working to get Obama elected, he has much more vested in making sure this report looks as bad as possible than you, I, or an impartial observer.

    They're from the ABC article linked in wiki. It's the earlier version of the article you cited.

    Of course not.

    Do I think he should be in charge of this investigation? Of course not.

    You would be throwing a fit if an investigation into Biden was being run by some down home far right-wing Republican.

    Wasn't he put in charge of the investigation of Palin prior to her nomination of McCain's VP?

    McCain & Co were aware of who was in charge of the investigation prior to choosing Palin for the GOP VP so if you have a problem with who is leading the investigation......your problem should be with McCain & Co. not with the Senator who was performing the investigation prior to Palin's nomination.

    FIT?
    let's not go there, OK?

    Obama renounced Wright, remember? She's still listening.
