The Sarah Palin week in review


She started the week by saying Obama was “palling around with terrorists”.   “Palling” isn’t a word; I believe she meant to say “hanging around in a friendly way like you would with your best pal”.  As a result of these statements, Palin and McCain supporters started yelling things like “off with his head” and “kill him” in reference to Barack Obama.  And when the ground swell was out of control she did nothing to stop it.  I finally found something that Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin have in common.  They both wanted Barack Obama assassinated at one time or another so that they could move into a position of power.  Clinton mentioned it in passing in June of 08 when she said the race wasn’t over yet because it was only early June.  And Bobby Kennedy was murdered in June during his 1968 run for the Presidency, so she still had time.

Next, because of Palin’s remarks, a woman at a McCain rally said she didn’t trust Obama because “he’s an Arab”.  Well first of all, if he was Arab he wouldn’t be allowed to run for President.  You have to be born an American citizen to be President.  What scares me is that one woman spoke out loud, in public, about show she was afraid of Obama because he was an Arab, and one man at another rally said that he was afrad of Obama being President because Obamais a terrorist.  If two people think it, that means a whole lot of people think it, too.  There should be a few simple questions asked of a voter to prove they have the faculties to cast a vote.  Start with “Can you spell you own name?” and then move on to difficult questions like “Do you have to be born in the USA to be President?  YES or NO”.  If you can’t answer these, you don’t deserve to vote.  When did acts of violence against American Presidents or Presidential Candidates become part of our culture.  Well, there were those “unfortunate incidents” but it’s not like it’s commonplace.

Next, I’ll take Abuse of Power for $200 Alex.

Check out this transcript of Palin’sconference call with reporters on Friday, October 10th, after the report of her “abuse of power” case was released.  It is all-telling and frankly, scary.  I still can not tell if she is dumb or clever. 

Here’s what the commission said:

“For the reasons explained in section IV of the report, I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.11(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act. 

“The legislature reaffirms that each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust.”

Here’s what Palin said on Friday after the above report summary was release:

I’m very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing … any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that.
