I’ll take “Transparent Absurdities” for $200, Alex.
Trying to head off a potentially embarrassing state ethics report on GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, campaign officials released their own report Thursday that clears her of any wrongdoing. . . .
Lawmakers are expected to release their own findings Friday. Campaign officials have yet to see that report — the result of an investigation that began before she was tapped as McCain’s running mate — but said the investigation has falsely portrayed a legitimate policy dispute between a governor and her commissioner as something inappropriate.
“The following document will prove Walt Monegan’s dismissal was a result of his insubordination and budgetary clashes with Governor Palin and her administration,” campaign officials wrote. “Trooper Wooten is a separate issue.”
In related news, I’ve decided to conduct my own tenure evaluation, in lieu of the highly partisan review I’m likely to receive from my peers and colleagues who don’t understand that writing mean things about the governor actually counts as “scholarship.” I’m also going to investigate that stream of bullshit parking tickets I received ten years ago in Minneapolis.
