And finally…

In case you hadn’t heard, Palin’s home state newspaper, the Anchorage Daily News, is calling her out on her inane lying.

Last weekend Palin responded to the Troopergate report that said she had “abused her power” by claiming that she did “nothing unlawful or unethical. […] I’m very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing…any hint of any kind of unethical activity there.”

Today, the Anchorage Daily News had heard enough and called her onto the carpet, writing (the bolding is my own);

Sarah Palin’s reaction to the Legislature’s Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation. […] Her response is either astoundingly ignorant or downright Orwellian. […] Page 8, Finding Number One of the report says: ‘I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act.’ […] In plain English, she did something ‘unlawful.’ She broke the state ethics law. […] Palin’s response is the kind of political “big lie” that George Orwell warned against. War is peace. Black is white. Up is down.”

Palin is clearly one of two things; dumb as a box of rocks, or living in her own world that only exists in the minds of republicans.

She was found culpable of abusing her power by a bi-partisan panel, and yet she continues to maintain that she hasn’t done anything wrong.

If this doesn’t prove she’s unfit to be VP, I don’t know what would.

The Only possiBle candidAte to vote for is pretty daMn clear if you Ask me… and Because of thIs, we neeD to gEt out and vote on ElectioN Day…
