It's not an ethics lapse if someone else does it for you.
It is beginning to look like a trend that Sarah Palin's minor and major judgment scrapes are always carried out by someone close to her. Of course she has no knowledge of what those in her inner circle are doing. And she would certainly never ask or suggest that someone should do her bidding.... < / sarcasm >
This NPR Nugget
about someone using Palin's infant son's name as a screen name on Wikipedia to scrub the candidate's entry just hours prior to the announcement is kinda funny and apparently typical.
The fact that a close aide was caught on tape
telling her ex-brother-in-law's boss that "
Todd and Sarah are scratching their heads, 'Why on earth hasn't this, why is this guy still representing the department?"
is not unusual either.
And while I no next to nothing about Alaska politics, this guy
seems to have his ear to ground and wonders if Sarah's hubby got an administration aide fired
because of an affair with the wife of one of Todd's friends.
McCain's years of wisdom have served him very poorly on his first major decision as the presumptive nominee.
Palin doesn't have skeletons in her closet. She apparently has fresh bodies.
