Saturday morning I walked into Walgreen's to pick up a prescription, and I was greeted by the blaring Chicago Sun-Times headline: "Palin Abused Power." Boy, was I ever relieved! I was afraid that the political hatchet-job investigation in the Alaska legislature may have come up with something really serious, like "Probe finds Palin cancelled gubernatorial subscription to Ladies Home Journal without consulting legislature."
Instead, we get nothing but the ho-hum charge that the Governor abused the power of her office. Well, we have precedent telling us that abuse of power is not a serious offense, as long as the office holder has a high job approval rating [see Clinton, William Jefferson, Impeachment], and Sarah Palin's job approval rating in Alaska approaches 90-percent. Case closed, right?
Wrong, apparently the Governor of Alaska and her husband are the only people in the entire state not allowed to complain about and demand investigation of an out-of-control police officer, in light of which, the Alaska Legislature may want to consider a new Official Seal for the Governor. How about this?
