Re: McCain VP Pick?? Investigation to begin into whether Governor Sarah Palin abused her power in firing Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan
Rookie Governor, 18 months experience, involved in a corruptions investigation. Hailing from the same state where the incumbent Republican Senator is embroiled in his own criminal ethics scandal. She's so in bed with Big Oil she is suing the Bush Administration over it's tepid efforts to protect Polar Bears, because it could burden Big Oil...

Did they even vet her?

McCain had some very qualified alternatives to pick from, many of whom would bring a lot to the table and shore up McCain's weaknesses.

The first Presidential level decision he makes and he fails miserably. He must be very taken with her to throw every other consideration to the wind....

Dan Quayle + Geraldine Ferraro + Spiro Agnew = Sarah Palin.

You don't get a pass on this, Sinanju.

Muddy the waters all you want.

You always beat on Obama over experience.

So it goes....

thwak


"Now you think this woman is credible?"

>>She is. Keep defending the tasering, wife-abusing cop, Polly... Your true paid SHILL colors are showing.

By all means, stay on the computer... it will be fun to watch your meltdown.

Has anyone else noticed yet that all these liberals are defending a wife-abusing cop who tasers a 10 year old stepson for 'training' purposes?

How transparent can you fucks be?

And I can honestly say, I am still not voting for McCain.... So why am I here?

To counteract all the lies by shills like Polly.

Checkmate my rear end.

No comparison.

Just an awful big insult to women everywhere.



I'll never get off this computer, dayumit.

Sin, you're the one who blasted Obama about experience.

Now you think this woman is credible?

Oh, I'm sorry but your opinions just tanked.

Talk about flip-flop.


PA-

This is a CHECKMATE and Barry and all of his followers are in full-frontal attack mode!

The BIGGEST difference between the two is ONE is at the TOP of the ticket and one ISN'T!

Uh, bye!!

hi


hi Mike!

I was wondering when you'd weigh in!!

hugs

When the Reps start with Rezko my understanding is that the D's won't hesitate to bring the Keating 5 out, Rick Renzi, the deplorable Walter Reed conditions with regards to the horrible treatment of our troops, Vicki Isleman, his treatment of first wife, Carole, his anger, and a whole host of other problems.

Tit for tat time....


You are SO Predictable, PA!

When are you going to start talking about the "Magic Negroes" problems with Tony Rezko & Bill Ayers, to name just a few?
lmao

A little balanced reporting is in order.....

Talk about taking the wind out of the "Chosen Ones" sails....

lol




McCain was cleared in the Keating 5 by none other than your boy BIDEN!

Polly you better research your issues. They lead to dead ends.

Obama has never faced investigation, and if he did he would not pass.

I am leaving this thread.

You disgust me!

Michael, I don't have that kind of time on my hands, the law will take care of the situation.

If she's proven to not have commited an abuse of power, then that's water under the bridge.

In actuality, this investigation is side bar to the fact that she's unqualified.

And, that is going to haunt them for a very long time.

Child abuse is despicable and an outrage to anyone.

That being said, so is ABUSE OF POWER.

I seem to remember an Arkansas governor who was just released from prison for some kind of abuse.

Let the situation play out.

Right now it's fair game for discussion.




POLLY
this investigation crap does not deter me from Palin one bit.

If that SOB would not fire that State Trooper for tasering his 10 year old stepson then he should have been fired.

When he was asked about it, the trooper claimed he was doing as investigative work. HUH?

I think she stepped up to the plate on that one.


But then again I suppose you believe it is perfectly ok to taser a child.


You better come up with a different argument.



Polly, these people are still going by her side of the story. My question is this, why start your own investigation into yourself, if you know you're not wrong. What's going to happen to the McCain campaign if the legistlative investigation finds she abused her power and decides to impeach her?

And the husbands side of the tasering, he says it was a training event. What that means I don't know. But what I do know, is that if he had malicious intent in the tasering, he would be up on charges, not just received a suspension. Child endangerment is not a disciplinary action(suspension) it's a criminal action...

Sarah Palin... Elected city councilwoman... elected mayor... elected President of Alaskan Mayor's Association... Ran and won as Alaska's first female Governor without the support of her own party... fought her own parties corruption on the local, state, and federal level... fought oil companies and won... fought the federal government and won...

I would have to say, as a person who is voting for NEITHER, that she is far more qualified.

Correct.

Which is why I wanted to get it out there but as you've seen, the freepers will defend their own until they run out of insults because they have no argument, no defense against the fact that she is berfit of any experience or qualifications needed to sit in the seat which guarantees her the presidency if McCain drops over.

This isn't right by any stretch of the imagination, and the risk it puts our country in is immeasurable.

The Republican handlers don't give one chit about the future of our country or the people in it.

This action proves it.

Re: McCain VP Pick?? Investigation to begin into whether Governor Sarah Palin abused her power in firing Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan
I'm watching all this as close as anybody here and whether she is/is not guilty of a cover up but she hasn't even accepted the vp position and they are digging the dirt on her. In the political business as you have seen, all your critics have to do is smell smoke. Don't matter if there is any fire or not, you are hung out to dry. She could be the best vp you ever saw but this will hang over all she does like a dirty black cloud

and if I can be a little shallow here, somebody needs to fix her up in the uniform of a female political figure,ie, well cut and tastefully colored dresses/pantsuits, bob hairstyle and ditch the glasses for contact lenses. Her fashion style and big bun just don't cut it...that is if she wants to stand beside Cindy McCain, Michelle Obama and Joe Biden's wife (forget her name) I still don't comprehend how or why McCain picked her as his running mate. If Turd Blossom is behind it, McCain should have had the balls to tell old Turd to fuck off, he would choose who ever he wants to be his 2nd...oh well, onto another thread chuckle

Quite shameful that they would nominate for the office of VP a rogue such as Sarah Pablum.

Licking her wounds and still wandering in stark disbelief, from this unorthodox strategy by McCain and his handlers. She does have a point though, both sides are playing this to the hilt for entertainment value--I wouldn't get too caught up in their games though.

Polly,

From today's NY Post, owned by conservative Murdoch, but he actually liked Hillary:



FOES PUT PALIN IN VEEP FREEZE
By GINGER ADAMS OTIS in St. Paul, Minn., and JAMES FANELLI in New York


August 31, 2008 --
Rosy-cheeked "hockey mom" Sarah Palin received a warm introduction from running mate John McCain, but a far chillier portrait of Alaska's governor was painted by her political rivals back home.

Lawmakers from the nation's coldest state shivered at the thought of her being a heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

"She's not prepared to be governor. How can she be prepared to be vice president or president?" state Senate President Lyda Green, a Republican from Palin's hometown Wasilla, told the Anchorage Daily News. "Look at what she's done to this state. What would she do to the nation?"

Other Republicans were genuinely surprised by McCain's selection and meteoric rise.


"Gov. Palin has an amazing ability to connect with voters, and I think there's some jealousy there," said Andrew Halcro, a Republican former state senator who ran against her in the last governor race as an independent.

"But there is this feeling out there that she gets a lot of credit that she shouldn't get credit for."

The moose-hunting ex-beauty queen unseated incumbent Gov. Frank Murkowski in 2006 on a platform that touted a proposal for a new natural gas pipeline while ending sweetheart deals with oil companies.

Just a week into office, she followed up on her words of reform and auctioned off the state jet, which had become a symbol of government excess.

But this summer, Palin's ethics were challenged after she ousted Walt Monegan, the state public safety commissioner. He says he was fired for refusing to fire the governor's former brother-in-law as a state trooper.

The dismissal brought criticism, and the state Legislature launched an ethics probe. The findings are due at the end of October, on the eve of the presidential election.

"I think it could hurt her in one of her stronger areas," said state Sen. Hollis French, who is director of the probe. "She's being touted as an ethical reformer. This could give her an ethical black eye."

Monegan was fired on July 11 after Palin aides and her husband, Todd, allegedly pressured him to fire Mike Wooten, the ex-husband of Palin's younger sister, Molly McCann. In visits and calls, they claimed Wooten had threatened the family, Tasered his 11-year-old stepson and had been drinking on the job, he said.

Wooten and McCann divorced in 2005 but have been embroiled in a bitter custody battle. In 2006, he was suspended for five days based on his former in-laws' allegations.

After her role in Monegan's firing was called into question, Palin admitted that she did speak to the commissioner about Wooten when she first took office. And a recorded phone call showed that at least one aide made a call to a state trooper liaison asking why Wooten still had a job.

The Washington Post reported Palin acknowledged this summer that a half-dozen of her staffers made more than two dozen calls about the matter to state officials.

Palin's spokesman, Bill McAllister, said he was unaware the aide had made that phone call. He also said Monegan was let go because he had not performed up to speed as the commissioner, leaving dozens of trooper posts unfilled.

McAllister also pointed to Palin's continued popularity.

"The small group of people in Alaska that don't like her really hate her with a passion," McAllister said. "Finally, they thought they found something that could bring her down. The public isn't buying it. She still has an 80 percent approval rating."

You seem to be a little bit on the histeric side, Polly.
What is it, really, fear?
Are you beginning to understand how it will end?
