Palin pre-empts state report, clears self

That’s right ladies and gentlemen Sarah Palin and the  McCain campaign have “cleared” her of any wrong doing in this matter. Praise be to sushi and udon.  Who else could have cleared the Wasila moose hunter and secessionists Governor of Alaska of any wrong doing.  

Palin pre-empts state report, clears self

Alaska lawmakers expected to release ethics probe findings Friday

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Trying to head off a potentially embarrassing state ethics report on GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report Thursday that clears her of any wrongdoing.

Sen. John McCain’s running mate is the subject of a legislative investigation into whether she abused her power as governor by firing her public safety commissioner. The commissioner, Walter Monegan, says he was dismissed in July for resisting pressure from Palin’s husband, Todd Palin, and numerous top aides to fire state trooper Mike Wooten, Palin’s former brother-in-law.


The Gods Must Be Crazy

After the stellar week that was the Democratic Convention it was only natural that the following week would be a profound disappointment.

Every day of the Democratic Convention went off without a hitch. Each speech was better than the last. Each speaker gave the speech of a lifetime. The fireworks went off on cue unlike the memory of the balloons that got stuck, and people cried with joy, happiness and pride for what their country could produce.

I watched every day and was enthralled by the ability of every speaker to deliver a well-crafted, inspiring speech.

The Republicans could not match it.
