It’s no surprise but Governor Palin has been found guilty of ethics violations. “A legislative investigator found that Palin violated state ethics laws and abused her power by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper.” Nor will it be a surprise when her conservative base continues to faun over her. These are the same people who have blinders on when it comes to President Bush and his disregard of a little something we call our Constitution.
Of course her ethics violation means nothing to those who love her style of “straight-shootin'” politics. Nor will it tarnish her hockey-mom status, but she had us all believin’ she’s a “breath of fresh air” in politics, not part of the Washington establishment, not in bed with the lobbyists. We thought she just needed a few more years and she’d make a perfect continuation of the Bush presidency. Maybe after this report, she’s not as green as we think. Is it too late to switch this to a Palin-McCain ticket? Remind me, which one’s the Maverick again?
