After the Troopergate came out, Sarah Palin says she feels vindicated to be cleared of wrongdoing?  Excuse me?  The report said clearly that she violated Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act, which states,

“… 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.”

Palin is living in some strange alternate reality universe, where interacting lightly with one person who had been violent 30 years earlier is bad but marrying a separatist is okay, where reports that say she violated the law say that she didn’t, where being governor of a small state gives you foreign policy experience…. WTF?

I have picked on Palin a lot on my blog because I feel like she is one of the major issues of the campaign.  Picking Palin was a terribly irresponsible thing for McCain to do. If McCain were 30 and in great health, it wouldn’t bother me so much, but the dude is old and has had cancer four times.  I don’t want to have someone suddenly be president who is so

  • inexperienced at national and foreign policy issues
  • incurious
  • willing to bend the ethical rules when it suits her
  • basically lie about her opponent to trigger extreme emotional reactions in her followers
  • unwilling to face reporters.

I think the press has been incredibly kind to her under the circumstances.
