Palin's $1250-a-Month Impurity

John McCain's maverick partner, self-proclaimed reformer of politicians' ethics, during her 20 months as governor has accepted gifts valued at $25,367 from industry executives, municipalities and a cultural center whose board includes officials from the largest mining interests in Alaska.

According to the Washington Post, Gov. Sarah Palin got expensive artwork, free travel for a family member, more than $2,500 in personal items from a corporation with pending regulatory and budgetary issues, and a gold-nugget pin valued at $1,200 from the city of Nome, which lobbies the state on budget matters.

On another ethical front, lawmakers investigating Gov. Palin's firing of her public safety commissioner yesterday accused the McCain-Palin campaign of stonewalling the probe by helping witnesses, including her husband, refuse to comply with subpoenas.

But then again, she did (eventually) say thanks but no thanks to the Bridge to Nowhere and try to sell the state airplane (unsuccessfully) on e-Bay.

Hey Rightist - Your candidate(s) themselves scare many Americans.

A Reverend expressed his displeasure with American policies and probably equated slavery into his diatribe.
When Ayers did what he did, Obama was a child.
Oh, Rezco is so bad, what about Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, Gonzales?
Republicans refuse to take responsibility for their mistakes, and refuse to even acknowledge any culpability at all unless they are spouting fake press like: "Mission Accomplished!" The transparency of Republicans is the real question today, and McCain's politicizing of the debate and Palin's stonewalling of her investigation shows that they are no different than the last Republicans in office. Americans are tired of it.

Why are conservatives so afraid? Why are their decisions based on fear rather than logic?

Why does John McCain hate America so much that he would choose a potential successor to the Presidency as a running mate, a person who makes Dan Quayle sound like the chairman of a Mensa meeting ?

Are federal election funds being used to pay legal expenses for those indicted to testify about 'Trooper Gate'? If so, is that legal?
