    Palin got picked as McCain's VP

    At least she is pro-life, pro -gun

    As an Alaskan I can say he could certainly have chosen worse. She's done a great job.

        We'll see how the whole Monegan/Wooten thing works out for her. I said I'd never vote for her again. I think I'm going to make a liar out of myself b/c there is no way I'll vote for 'Bama & Biden!

            Cliff notes version:

            Walt Monegan is the head of Department of Public Safety. Trooper Wooten works for same. Wooten marries Palin's sister which of course ends in nasty divorce (never marry a cop; we suck at marriage). Various members of Palin's family try to get Wooten fired during nasty divorce.

            Palin makes governor then fires Monegan for not-terribly-clear reason. Sore loser from last election starts telling everyone that she fired Monegan because she wanted Wooten fired but he wouldn't do it. Palin says that's not true.

            Jury of fact is still out. Jury of Palin-haters convicted her guilty.

              Come on now. The legislature didn't authorize $100,000 to investigate this on a whim. You gotta admit at the very least there were some very questionable uses of her office regarding all this. I will never defend Wooten, but he's beside the point in my mind.

                I'm still stuck on the fact that it doesn't matter why she decided to get rid of Monegan. It may not have been popular, and thanks to Halcrow a zillion questions have been raised regarding her reasons, but Monegan was appointed and served at the whim of the Governor. Any appointed official can lose their job any time, and they know that. No justification is even necessary.

                I'm not saying I liked the decision, or that it was a good one, but it's not for me or anyone other then the governor to decide, either.

                  The 'investigation' isn't into whether or not she did something illegal or even unethical, it's to decide the question: why did she fire him?

                  As mentioned above, it's an appointed position. An officer on the street should only be fired for cause, but when you're the #1 position in a government office you can be canned for no other reason than they found someone better.

                  And that job is cursed anyway. No way I'd take it.

                          She'll be back soon after November 4. Thanks for your concern though.

                            I wouldn't count on it. Obama has shown his campaign to be quite inept, I think McCain/Palin win with less than 5% margin.

                              Except one would expect the "better" replacement to last longer than 2 weeks. It begs the question; if Chuck Kopp was better, why didn't the Gov appoint him in the first place?
