    The goofy Governor of Alaska doesn't seem to think rules were made for her or her hillbilly family..More trouble could be brewing however as it looks like this Henning guy is no fan of Palin, can't say that I blame him...his efforts to keep her in line are admirable.

    I am sure that Palin thinks Ethics is a county in the UK

    She doesn't believe the rules apply to her.

    Anyone remember the last time a huge deal was made about a complaint and she was cleared of all wrongdoing?

    This is so funny, some one "claims" she did something wrong.... and before anyone can prove it or investigate it she is dog crap

    but when it come to the messiah and things he has actually done wrong...or things people are trying to have actually investigated, well that is just hateful


    you guys make me laugh so much

    I am not sure if this one has any legs either. It revolves around her using state resources while campaigning for office. Im taking a wait and see attitude about this one. There wont be the Presidential campaign partisanship claims.
    There does seem to be a fair amount of people are curious as to if we have the Sarah Palin that is Governor of Alaska, or Sarah Palin that is Executive branch candidate 2012.

    I'm no Palin fan to be certain. But honestly, if she is being accused of wrongdoing because of this, I would think that same case could be made of most governors or senators running for president. In fact, to some extent, I think certain states get the shaft during the whole election process. Perhaps they should have a law that requires people to step out of their elected office if they are going to run full-time. This applies to both Obama and McCain as well. I don't think the needs of the constituents that voted them into office in the first place are being considered.

    She wouldn't win at this point. I think if she is the best we can come up with in 2012 we are going to be in for another bad election.

    I would agree. I have plenty of Republican friends (I even kissed one once, LOL!) and many of them were very underwhelmed and disappointed by her.

    I have been both critical and very happy with her. It depends on what we are talking about.
    That might be the case, but we are talking about Alaska here, who passed very stiff legislation in regards to ethics standards by elected officials. This comes in the wake of the long standing and ongoing corruption scandal in Alaska. This legislation was campaigned on, lobbied for, supported by, and signed into law, by guess who?
    Alaska is certainly included here. 1 member in the house, and being apparently so inconsequential that the national media had declared the election victory before the polls had even closed here.
    Its tricky to do in reality considering the 1st amendment, but I think it should be left up to the states in general.
