October Surprise

Karma has gotten Palin.

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin abused her power as Alaska’s governor in the firing of her public safety commissioner, but violated no laws, a report for the state Legislature concluded Friday.

With all of the visceral anger coming from the McCain campaign as of late, most notably from Sarah Palin, the truth is revealed about her character. She may not have broken the law, but she has demonstrated that lack of character that is required of someone who wants the second highest position in the land. This is the last thing America needs in a critical period in its history, someone who has been proven to abuse their position of power to settle personal feuds. America does not need another power hungry politician in the White House leading and will not stop at anything to get what they want.

Sarah Palin is not a patriot. Sarah Palin cares only about herself and her political ambition. The McCain campaign can kiss their bid for the White House good bye. I say good riddance.

President Clinton was impeached due to abuse of power – NOT breaking the law. So it is now up to the Alaskan government to impeach Palin.

  1. Let’s see, one canidate abuses power to protect her family, the other starts his political career in the home of a person who wants to blow up your family.

  2. I cannot believe Sarah Palin, who call herself a christian, can rally her supporters to be so hateful and divisive. It is not surprising to me that she is found guilty of abusing her power. The public needs to ask, who is really Sarah Palin?

  3. REv, it’s been proven false.

  4. If I were in her shoes or her husbands I would have tried my best to kick the A**holes butt but then thats one reason why I wont be running for VP anytime soon …smiles.

    If you actually read the report you will find that the threat to the family is the assertion of the Gov and her husband and has not been independently verified. The trooper denies that he ever threatened them.
    The more important thing that came out the report is about that TASERING of the child. The OFFICIAL investigation found some interesting details to that report. The boys mother was right there WATCHING and did NOTHING to stop it. Bristol Palin (the governors daughter) was right there WATCHING and did nothing to stop it. Sarah and Todd Palin were told of the event within hours of it occurring and did NOTHING! Not a call to police, not a call to child protective services, they did not take the boy to their home for shelter nor did Todd or Sarah’s father go over to Molly’s house and KICK WOOTEN’s a s s. This speaks volumes about the character of all of them. What we dont want to embarrass the political sister by publicly airing the dirty linen of the family?

  5. SURPRISE! Here’s the difference between Obama/Biden and McSame/SheBush. One had a few sketchy associates, with ZERO evidence that Obama did anything illegal, let alone morally wrong. McSame was directly involved with the Keating 5 (he was one of the 5 for crying out loud). McSame was also directly involved in the Iran Contra scandal. And Falin is now busted for abusing her power. Right-wing scum, karma is bitch.

  7. What kind of double talk is this? I was wondering why McCain was defending Obama today. Because he knew this was going to come out! It is not that I am concerned so much about her abusing her power in Alaska. That is small. But will she abuse her power on a large scale in the Oval Office? That scares me to death. And she is a weeper. I saw her on television tonight with tears in her eyes. Post-partum Depression, maybe?

  8. COMPARED to some other things that other pliticians have done, this is not that big of deal.

    Comment by sally — October 11, 2008 @ 2:44 am

  9. Its not a “big deal” at all except it speaks volumes about McCains vetting process for his VP selection. This investigation was going on before he ever selected Gov. Palin.

  10. I wonder if she golfs. Looks like it time to hit the links because this campaign is over rover…

  11. As an undecided voter, I think this has finally tipped the scales and I am voting for Ron Paul. I just don’t understand why Palin has been accusing Obama of lying when she was the one trying to cover up past misdeeds. I did the research, and the panel who convicted her was working on it before she even got selected to be VP, and there are lots of Republicans on the panel, too. The whole “Hussein” hate is really not what we Americans are about, even us conservatives who understand what being tough in the middle east means, and who understand sacrifice for victory and strong economic principles. After researching McCain, and now Palin, it looks like these two are really self-absorbed and will not put “COUNTRY FIRST” ahead of their own agendas. McCain and his shady deals with Keating Five and now his socialist mortgage-loan bailout plan, Palin and her overt racism and abuses of power. Both add up to a ticket I cannot support. I cannot support the Democrats, but I will not vote for a party that’s looking blatantly criminal and does not seem to stand for what I believe in. They are an embarrassment to our party, like Hillary was for the Democrats.

    Why could McCain could have just chosen Romney? Plus he would be an ace-in-the-hole in this economic crisis. I wanted Romney from the first on the ticket and don’t know how McCain got there. He’s an independent at best and Palin has always looked like a sham, and now is reaping what she sowed. I am so disappointed in my party. At a time like this we should really have some strength in the White House and they have let us all down. Any Republican knows this right now and it is shameful. Our party is tanking. Thanks a lot, now the race is over.

  12. Hmmmm what party is Ron Paul running in? sheesh!!!!

    Comment by mike — October 11, 2008 @ 3:16 am

  13. If the same situation happened to Obama it would be all over the news. We really need to get past race issues in this country. We all have to go to the bathroom the same way. We are born and have to die the same way. We all want the same for our families. Maybe one day we will have a hispanic run or an asian that was born in this country.

  14. As Chris Rock said, “Sarah Palin is asking who is Barak Obama?, Well who the *&^% are you, no one heard of you until 5 weeks ago.” How TRUE!

  15. What gets me about the supporters of the republican party is not that many of their values have gone too far to the right. (before W, I might have considered myself more of a republican). Understand, I have plenty of issues with Obama but the do not come close to what concerns me about the republicans.

    What I cannot understand is that they have chosen to accept the efforts of their politicians to create an “us vs. them” atmosphere.

    While I can live with a president that may not share all of my views and values. I cannot tolerate a president that does not respect me.

    There is a difference between having a president that is able to connect and understand the common man (and woman) in the country and actually being common. I find that too many GOP supporters are intimidated by those that are educated. I personally want the smartest, most articulate, capable person to have the job.

    What the supporters of the current GOP ticket don’t seem to grasp is that those of us that are turned off by the republican ticket are worried about the country as a whole. All of our futures. The scope of the issues extends far beyond those that the GOP is espousing. I am ok with the right to bear arms, drill off of our coasts, even have aggressive foreign policy. What I’m not ok with is not questioning authority, wrapping up intolerance and ignorance in the american flag and then being told I’m not patriotic for not accepting it.

    We need a president that is willing to surround himself with the best minds that can be found in this country. Not a president that will bury his head in the sand.

    When will the supporters of the GOP understand that the ability to articulate a concept is not waffling. That answers to today’s problems are longer than 1 sentence. That simply saying you will “change” things is not an answer to a question. I am frustrated because you choose to ignore that you and I are being spoken down to when this is what we get.

    I am not fed up with you because of your values. I am fed up with GOP supporters for accepting being spoken down to. For not demanding more from those that are asking for us to hand them power. A distinction must be made between being patriotic and following blindly.

    Just because something is said in a short sentence and forcefully, doesn’t mean it is true. I hope for all of our sakes that those leaning to the right think about this.

  16. To “Fatty” – AMEN! Your post is EXACTLY how I feel. I love your comment about the distinction between understanding the common man and BEING common. Thank you for putting into words so beautifully what I’ve felt for some time now.

  18. Take this Mccain : How does Obama get called anti-American for coming across a former domestic terrorist who happen to live in the same neighbourhood? Yet Sarah Palin allows Alaskan seperatist Todd palin,not only to have access to her office but run his indecent ambitions from the Governors office? Where is the Straight talk Express? My vote is for “ThatOne” !
