What the fuck? How do you clear yourself? This is hinky.
She's crapping her pants.
Hey the photo isn't airbrushed! Come on! Play fair ABC News!!!!
Good expression. I've been following this thing but hadn't read that piece. Apparently, after the investigation got into full swing, Palin tried to make the case that it was an illegal investigation and only the Alaska State Personnel Board could investigate the issue. That was nice attempt since it would probably be in her favor to have members of a board which she has the authority to fire investigate whether or not she improperly used her authority to have someone fired. Didn't we just have 8 years of this sort of corrupt way of doing things? When that plan failed, the RNC jumped in. They tried to have to investigation halted claiming it was being influenced by partisan politics. To which the investigators filed a complaint that the RNC complaint was frivilous and that combined with suspicions that people working on behalf of the McCain campaign had convinced 8 people who were going to testify after receiving subpoenas to ignore the subpoenas and not testify- all of this was tantamount to obstruction of justice. A judge ruled to allow the investigation to continue, stating that appearance of impropriety was not evidence and that the legislature had every right to investigate the firing, since apparently they had approved his hiring. (The partisan influence thing probably wasn't helped by the fact that the investigative committee has I believe 10 republicans and 6 democrats).
All of this in an investigation with which Palin said she would cooperate. This bugs me way more than "associates". Abuse of power is a serious charge in my opinion. Especially when considering whether to possibly give that person more power. It's strange that this hasn't gotten more media play, since depending on the results, it could have far reaching consequences.
Why didn't Nixon think of this?
Man, talk about the audacity of hope. lol...
and yes, CW, it's very hinky... because they KNOW the real report isn't going to be pretty.
Well looks like the whole "Liberal conspiracy" of her not following the rules wasn't so crazy after all.

This stinks of fear.
McCain/Palin are crashing hard.
McCain's poll numbers are going to be worse then the Stock Market.
I blame the lack of coverage on that liberal media the Republican whine about all the time.
Not even Bill Clinton did that during his impeachmeant hearings. The mere fact that they realeased their own report before the real report comes out (quite a maverick move, I must say!) just shows me that the real report is going to show something very bad for Palin.
In the words of Nelson from the Simpsons: HA HA!
