    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    It doesn't say how, and is likely irrelevant since it's already been established that she did not, nor did anyone in her administration, suggest or tell the Public Safety Commissioner that he should fire Wooten.

    My guess is most democrats don't even know anything about what I just said anyway. You are just are hack job partisan trying to stop the Republican ticket.

    Take a look at the polls, the Republican ticket is already stopped, in fact it's barely treading water....this is just another nail in the coffin.

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    Let us recap:


    Popeye: Palin abused her power! It is in this report.

    Andy: How did she abuse it, the report does not say?

    Popeye: The polls show Republicans behind.


    What? :rolleyes:

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    I'm just reporting what the Anchorage Daily News says:


    I've got an idea, instead of viewing things through your partisan tunnel vision and assuming she did nothing wrong, try reading the report yourself. I posted it once, here it is again:

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    I am not reading 300 pages. I skimmed the 4 main factors and it said at best she violated some ethics code.

    It also says "Palin's firing of Monegan was "a proper and lawful exercise" of the governor's authority."

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    That report is rather lengthy, here's a brief summary from CNN

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    I'm thinkin'.....much like '96 (when the RNC threw Bob Dole to Bill Clinton)....the Republicans knew they had no chance at the Presidency, after Daddy Bush & The NeoCons raped The Treasury.

    Option 1: Give-up the most-dispensible Republican they can think-of; McCain. Saddling him with some pin-headed bimbo was icing-on-the-cake.

    I'll be awfully disappointed if we don't get (at least) one stage-dive!!

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    Granted it does say she had the authority but it also she's been covering up her real motivation. Look, I don't know how big a deal this is but it once again puts a floundering campaign on it's back foot and in that sense it is not good news for the GOP.

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    Are you suggesting that the nomination of John McCain is a GOP conspiracy?

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER

    I think it will dominate the news cycle for a day or so, and then the economy will be back to the front.

    At best things stay unchanged, at worst, they most likely stay mostly unchanged.

    Which goes to support my view that this isn't important to you other than as a political football. Which goes to why I couldn't really careless about you or your irrelevant views.

    Re: Palin ABUSED HER POWER


    You're probably right, though it will dominate the Sunday shows as well. Anyway, as long as the economy remains the issue, Obama wins.

    I'm not ready, as some people are, to state that Obama can't lose at this point but barring some unforeseen disaster it's awfully hard to see him losing either.
