Palin probe unveiled

The MSM is reporting that a probe by Alaska’s state legislature has ruled that Palin abused the power of her office.  What did she do to abuse power?  She didn’t rein in the First Dude when he phoned various personnel in state government to talk about Trooper Wooten, an ex-brother-in-law who’d run afoul of workplace rules in the past.

It is a spot on Palin’s record.

Having said that, I wish that’s the worst that could be said about many of our current crop of politicians.  I realize people are human and prone to error, but there are so many politicians, some still in office, that are guilty of much more egregious behavior that I think should have been given the heave-ho a long time ago.

Also, the First Dude’s efforts were geared toward greater integrity among state troopers.  It still fits within Palin’s framework of putting government on the side of the people, even when the government is doing what it can to resist it.

Let’s not forget that Palin bucked the system to get to where she is, not riding anyone’s coattails, and taking on dirty politicians within her own party, let alone taking on those outside the party.  That kind of track record is bound to make enemies among the political elites.  These political elites that have been spurned by Palin are hoping that they’ve opened a window that will allow them to regain ground that they lost to Palin.

Personally, I wish we had a bunch of politicians in Ohio that had Palin’s attitude about putting government on the side of the people, and not letting entrenched interests stand in the way of that.

    It appears that the Alaskan first family is guilty … of protecting a family member and attempting to instill some integrity in the Alaskan State Troopers.

    I hate to draw what might be a potentially flawed comparison, but wasn’t the last time that we heard about State troopers in Arkansas, when they were riding shotgun on a suspected sexual predator?

    Well, if Trooper Wooten were to pack it in and start over somewhere else, I don’t think Little Rock is the right place any more. Perhaps the Empire State would be more accommodating.

    Hey, if you can’t find real dirt you take some dust and make it into dirt… Since Palin is not the favored daughter of the media she has to be portrayed as blemished and imperfect.

    […] If I were to begin to compare Biden with Palin, there really is no comparison.  Biden has been entrenched in the U.S. Senate for 29 years, and has ridden the gravy train throughout.  I’ve written several blog entries about Palin that touched upon the topic of earmarks and reform here, here, here, here, here, and most recently, here and here.
