Black Widow Spiders, Poison, Ethics and Sarah Palin

… 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. –Governor Sarah Palin

Sigh.

Sometimes it’s tough, being the bearer of bad news.

I feel the need to break it to Sarah Palin- gently, of course- that she is dead-ass wrong in her understanding of what the final “Troopergate” Investigative Report actually says.

I guess since Palin’s this cute little wanna-be national politician, we should expect her to try and spin the hell out of this thing…

… Similar to the web a very dangerous, very poisonous, albeit relatively small black widow spider- on steroids- would spin… but the fact remains…

The panel found that Pit Bull Palin was completely, and yes, ethically out of line when she fired Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan… she fired his ass, at least in part, because he refused to fire Palin’s brother-in-law… who was embroiled in a nasty divorce with her sister.

Got that?

The investigation determined that Palin knew daggone good and well what she was doing… and that she was wrong in doing it:

I find that Governor Sarah Palin Abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Ethics Act…

And then further states:

... Compliance with the code of ethics is not optional… Governor Palin knowingly permitted a situation to continue where impermissable pressure was placed on several subordinates in order to advance a personal agenda.

Look, I’m no ethics investigator, but…

Sounds to me like the lady violated some shit… more specifically, she violated some ethical shit… the very same kinda shit she says she was cleared of violating…

… But really wasn’t.

Huh.

Spin, baby, spin.

  1. Ah, another potty mouth Barack supporter who spews anti-Palin rhetoric. She really gets under your skin because she dares to speak her mind and oppose the Annointed One.

  2. Karl Rove? Is that you??

    Actually, she gets under my skin because she’s an idiot and for the life of me I cannot figure out how ANYONE- you included, I’m afraid- can justify taking her seriously.

    Shit- I dare to speak my mind too…

    Am I now qualified to be VP?

    Scary thought… but not nearly as scary as this right-wing nut-job being one heartbeat away from the presidency.

  3. I disagree Chaze77… Spin is something done when one is attempting to be smooth in altering the facts or course of an argument… There is nothing smooth about Palin’s attempt. She went in for the bold-face lie! Straight UP/No Chaser!

  4. Hi chaze77 … thanks for the comment on my blog:) . I totally agree on your post. Someone had to break the news to her. Fortunately, we do have the write to free speech and a free mind —-speak to your hearts content.
    @ suppose : How can you support someone who has built their political career on calling out unethical abuses of power and then turns around and does the same thing? Then when found guilty, she looks straight into the camera and says that she wasn’t found of any wrong doings. She lied… with out a blink”I’m glad I was.Cleared of any wrong doing? “‘ahhhh ok Sarah Furthermore, she says she and John McCain are going to stop the abuses of power in Washington…. Hmmmm .What was it found again in Troopergate? Look at the facts…
