Palin Wants an End to Palin Investigation

Ah, the rich, deep, well of corruption that is modern Republicanism spews another gobbet of crud onto our screens.

Palin Calling for an End to Investigation She Requested
When the Alaska Legislature's Legislative Council, a Republican-dominated panel of 14 legislators which conducts business when the Legislature is out session, voted to investigate the firing of former Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan in July, Palin pledged her full support.

But almost immediately after joining the GOP ticket, Palin's Troopergate strategy veered sharply. Despite her earlier vows of full cooperation with the probe, she declared it unlawful. The legislature lacked the authority to investigate the matter, she said. Instead, it should be handled by the state personnel board, Palin asserted -- a panel which is under her authority.
But never fear, she's got friends. New ones. From Texas, even!

Suit Filed to Stop Troopergate Probe into Gov. Sarah Palin
A group of Alaska Republican lawmakers, with the support of a Texas-based conservative legal group, has filed suit to stop the Alaska Legislature's "Troopergate" probe into Gov. Sarah Palin.

A suit filed today aims to stop the Alaska Legislature's "Troopergate" probe into Gov. Sarah Palin.
The suit alleges the legislature overstepped its authority by probing the Republican's vice presidential pick, "conducting a 'McCarthyistic' investigation in an unlawful, biased, partial and partisan political manner" to sway the upcoming state and national elections.
That would be that McCarthyistic (Since Tailgunner Joe was a repub, I can only imagine they mean Gene) investigation that Governor Palin agreed to fully co-operate with? That partisan effort from a Republican-dominated Legislative Council?

Anyone hear a clucking sound over at the Republican campaign?

Perhaps McCain should have vetted her for more than fifteen minutes, eh?

I'd take Ahrper in a CF-18 cockpit any day of the week over the new, improved Nixon-Agnew ticket the Republicans are offering this year. At least some CAF erk could forget to put the safety pin in the ejection seat . . . .

Harper, not Ahrper. That damned Norwegian pop group has an aftereffect far out of proportion to its societal value . . .

@FFE #1:
Ooooh ... Harper ejected ... talk dirty to me!

I wonder whether he'd behave any differently if he were running for Prez rather than PM?

I doubt it. His campaign seems at least as dishonest as McCain's.

#2:
Is that Scandahoovian pop outfit the one the Brits sometimes call "Ahhrbba?"

Have you seen the Economist piece comparing McCain with Nixon?

You'd think Nixon would come off less favourably.

Off topic: I once knew an army trucker who had been through three trades. I'll post about him, now that you've reminded me.
