So the Alaska investigation into "Troopergate" has found that Sarah Palin violated state ethics law by trying to influence the firing of Trooper Mike Wooten. No need to go into the details here. If you are interested in how hubby Todd Palin was involved in the case you can certainly search the internet. And if you want to find out the involvement of John McCain into the Keating 5 case you can also find it on the internet. And if you want to find out how McCain's wife Cindy continued involvement with Keating from 1987 to 1998 you can also find it on the internet.
I think it is beyond simple politics when the McCain-Palin team makes a point of Barak Obama's name...Barak Hussein Obama. HEY, this is America! There is no excuse for this low life type of campaigning. I, and hopefully most Americans, are offended by this. This shows exactly the type of people McCain and Palin are, i.e. ruthless and unbending in their attempt to capture the White House. It shows contempt for what America is, and the words written at the base of the Statue of Liberty. If you want to know what those words are you can certainly look it up on the internet. I would hope that Americans pay attention to what type of administration McCain and Palin would bring to the Oval Office.
Which brings up the Obama-Ayers connection. Bill Ayers has admitted that he took part in some small scale bombing in protest of US involvement in Vietnam. That was 40 years ago. Ayers and Obama were on an anti-poverty board in Chicago. Ayers is today considered an education expert, thus his participation on the board. The McCain-Palin team has linked the board participation and the bombings in a misleading and deceitful way. Obama associates with terrorists is a LIE. First of all, when these "terrorist" acitivities took place Obama was, are you ready, EIGHT YEARS OLD. But obviously the McCain-Palin team has used their association to imply that Obama is a terrorist. Barak Hussein Obama is a terrorist. Shameful tactics. They have nothing substantial to bring to voters, so they use these lies to attack the other candidate.
It will be intersting to watch the spin on "Troopergate." BTW, the McCain-Palin team tried to delay the announcement out of Alaska until after the election. Is anyone surprised?
