The strange looking blonde commentator on my TV keeps stressing the fact that she's a hunter, a fisherwoman, and a "hockey-mom"

I've heard it like 10 times now. Great.

And yet, I'm sure they'd readily deny it just as quickly as Hillary or McCain denied playing the race card.

Alaska legislators on Monday voted to spend up to $100,000 to investigate Gov. Sarah Palin's controversial firing of former state Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. The decision came from the Legislative Council, a bipartisan panel of state senators and representatives.

The committee itself will not conduct the probe. Rather, it will hire an independent investigator to explore whether Palin, her family or members of her administration pressured Monegan to fire an Alaska state trooper involved in a rough divorce from Palin's sister.

Monegan contends he did feel such pressure, and the question for the investigator will be whether Monegan might have lost his job for failing to dismiss trooper Mike Wooten.

Palin has denied applying any pressure or otherwise abusing her power as governor.
...
Palin abruptly fired Monegan on July 11 and later explained she wanted to take the Department of Public Safety in a different, more energetic direction. She replaced him with Chuck Kopp, the former Kenai police chief. But Kopp resigned Friday over questions about a reprimand he received after a sexual harassment complaint lodged against him in Kenai.
...
On Monday, the council voted 12-0 to spend up to $100,000 "to investigate the circumstances and events surrounding the termination of former Public Safety Commissioner Monegan, and potential abuses of power and/or improper actions by members of the executive branch."
This is happening as we speak.

Full story here.

If that's the best that liberals can come up with, bring it on- a situation where I would guess most Americans side with Palin and would do the same thing in her spot if their family was being abused or threatened.

One benefit of picking someone with little history is that there aren't many skeletons in the closet. It's so odd to choose someone with little history and already a decent skeleton in her closet.

I really hope that this is how they explain it.

i don't see how "executive governing experience" is now such a sticking point.

You have to match things up tit for tit and tat for tat.

Obama 2 weeks of a Senator vs Mc Cain suporter of surge and f policy exp.. Huge Advantage- Camp McCain

and then Biden never governed plus a a dismal approval rating. Advantage Sarah P Camp McCain.
Governing a state is much harder than being a Senator. Advantage Sarah P Camp McCain
Plus you guys conveneiently ignore her 80% approval rating....hellooooo. Advantage Camp McCain
Independent thinking woman-Advantage Camp McCain.


Advantage McCain tic-totally.

Dems, your ship has hit an ice berg- you haven't realized it yet.

Us open minded compassionate McCain supporters will be here w the lifeboats.

So, she's borderline Canadian. Do we need Canadians right now? I mean, hockey? Ice? Hunting? Ice fishing? Snow? I thought that's why we lived south of Canada. To avoid the snow and ice. And then what? Maple syrup? An army with people like DaveC? C'mon!

Again, let's dumb down America and assume that we'd all abuse power to do something to another person in a way that won't even help my family member. Seems rather spiteful and amoral to me.

But, alas! Perhaps we are all that simple and don't hold ourselves to any higher standards. What a sad nation we have become.

You realize this investigation has been going on well before there was talk of her being VP, that the commitee is bi-partisan, and the investigators are independent? So what does this have to do with liberals?

An abuse of power is an abuse of power. It questions whether she'd be able to do the right thing for the American public.
