palin's lies, palin's future

abc news' jake tapper wades his way through sarah palin's blatant lies about the tasergate troopergate report.
Palin spoke on the phone with Alaska reporters about the report. The McCain-Palin campaign only allowed one question per reporter. The journalists came from the Anchorage Daily News, KTVA-Channel 11 and KTUU-Channel 2. No follow-ups were allowed.

"Well, I’m very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing," Palin said, "any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that."

That's just not the case.
and it doesn't get any better.

some thoughts: no one should be taking an obama win for granted. there's still plenty of time for a major shift, or a catastrophic blunder, or an october surprise. but should mccain lose the election, what becomes of palin and her future in national politics?

does she return to relative obscurity, resuming her role as alaska's governor? or does a mccain/palin loss in 2008 only give her momentum? we still actually know very little about her (although certainly more than mccain did when he picked her.) but in a very short time we've learned some rather unpleasant things, seen some unpleasant behavior. many people attending mccain rallies are leaving after palin speaks, not waiting around for the headliner. my guess is she's not going away, no matter what happens on the the fourth of november.


  1. She'll have a show on Fox in a year or so. And that's fine - that's what she's TRAINED to do!! God knows she has no background to be VP.

  2. If she had a show on FOX, I would absolutely watch it. In fact, screw FOX! She should go straight to Comedy Central and work as a Foreign Correspondent on The Daily Show!

  3. There's no winners here. Palin and her husband went out of their way to fire a guy who sounds like a real a-hole and possibly a little deranged to boot.

  4. She's got more than 15 minutes in her future. She's bright, driving, and has the ability to electrify the conservative party. And with more experience, and some good coaching, I expect we'll see a lot more from Ms. Palin down the road...I mean, it's not like the GOP will trot out McCain again in four years!
