How well do we really know Sarah Palin? This MSNBC clip gives more details about the report, released Friday by a bipartisan committee in Alaska, that determined Governor Palin had dismissed her public safety commissioner partly because of a personal family matter.

Catherine: your comment on “thrist for animal blood” is bang on. If you want to see the true nature of Sarah’s attitude toward animals she feels get in the way of big oil and it is not because as she and her goon squad she has working in wildlife claim, that the wolves had reduced caribou calves to the survival rate of 1%, meaning they are killing 99%. Anyone who has studied this knows that wolves kills have about a 3% success rate and then only take out the old, diseased, injured and young. The way her workers tell it, wolves take all the available caribou. Perhaps it is over hunting by humans.

Samosamo: Yes Sarah does have a past track record of getting even with those she feels have dissed her, not agreed to her every whim, or that have crossed her. She is one very vindictive person and has no business in politics at all.

hmmmm…while Palin hasn’t murdered anybody yet that we’re aware of ( if you don’t consider her thirst for animal blood and her attempts to murder the character of Barack Obama), the vengeful actions of her and her husband remind me of how all dictators behave once they have the power to enact their fantasies.

I never saw such a pure, unadulterated fascist in my life. I call her Gov. Moosolini.

It sad that in this modern day(whatever that really means)that a person does not have to assess their limitations. Normally it would have made someone give serious thought about their ability to carry out the requirements of a public held office whether elected or appointed. This can only show that the requirement for holding public office are only brought down to 2 points:
a) they are in it for the money
b) they are in it for the power
And either way there are most likely the ‘behind the scenes’ people that will be pulling the strings for what is really the reason they are being shoved into public office. Damn, if I had the demonstrable incapacity to show I was not up to snuff for a position as this woman has shown, I would politely decline the offer. But this woman through her current troubles is demonstrating that she loves the power and the money and wants it at all costs, damn ability and fealty to office and country. She seems to me to want to get even and/or take revenge on people for her own petty reasons.
The same applies to the whole McPalin ticket. They are the worst of the 2 major choices.

The sad thing about this corrupt power issue is that Sarah is getting expert advice on how to spin even the most loathsome of personal embarrassments to come out looking like we should all dismiss it as a non-event.  Where else could she get this kind of experience and education except from the beloved (vomit) Rove types?

Who cares? You can tell by looking at her that she is a control freak!

This investigation,  as well as the one that says that the firing of the US Attorneys was politically motivated and that Alberto (I can’t recall) Gonzales was lying through his teeth, is only confirming the obvious…

This would be news if Palin had not abused power and Gonzales was telling the truth… AND I forgot, the moon is made of green cheese!

Troopergate says a lot about Alaska’s Governor, and I agree with what is being said here. With Palin, there is no separating the personal from the professional, which is a major shortcoming in any potential national leader. 

It also shows Palin along with her husband are arrogant, vindictive, and without conscience when it comes to messing around with the lives of other people, including her sister’s children and their father.
