Governor ‘Abuse of Power’ just doesn’t get it

Alaskans are not happy with Sarah;

Sarah Palin’s reaction to the Legislature’s Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation.

AND

Palin’s response is the kind of political “big lie” that George Orwell warned against. War is peace. Black is white. Up is down.

I love how Republican pundits are downplaying Sarah now that they have figured out she is hurting McCain. I have heard at least three of them say in the past couple of days “It’s McCain that is running for president not Palin.” While this is true I find it ironic she no longer is important to the Republicans.

Perhaps Gov. Palin has been too busy to actually read the Troopergate report. Perhaps she is relying on briefings from McCain campaign spinmeisters.

That’s the charitable interpretation.

Because if she had actually read it, she couldn’t claim “vindication” with a straight face…

Gov. Palin and her husband were obsessed with Wooten the way Capt. Ahab was obsessed with the Great White Whale. No Wooten, no peace.

Whales and Alaskans – great comparison.

It get’s better:

If a public official refuses to acknowledge reality and invents an alternative reality to live in, she cannot be vice-president, let alone president, of the United States. This is not a judgment call. We have a denialist loony on one of the major tickets.
