I'm going to have to direct you to Exile1981 post above.

Her name is Kim Chatman, an Obama pollster/supporter who is behind many of these "charges.


Not sure if it's the same Kim Chatman (actually I'm 75% sure it's not) but there is also a Kim Chatman who worked for Obama in the last election as a field organizer moving between states.
www.gwu.edu/~action/2008/obama/obamagenal.html
Her she is listed as helping in Alabama. Other Obama sites have her listed as working in other states too.

So you say, but a day is coming when no living American will dare to vote liberal or so called progressive. Unfortunately prior to that occurrence the liberals will have to destroy the country and experience their reward, the great nuclear cleansing.



It's mighty hard to argue with logic like that!

only 4 more days, then she'll no longer be the states governor, at least she signed the sovereignty thing before leaving.

Or perhaps Gov. Palin saw the handwriting on the wall and saw the ethics probe coming because she realized what she had done.

And bailed on the citizens of Alaska that elected her and "cut and run"

I don't think her problems are politically motivated. She ceased to be a threat when she resigned. Quiters never win.



This^

I just want to add that i'm not a liberal, I'm libertarian. But from what I've seen she seems incredibly dumb and gullible. (remember "mr. sarkozy's" phone call?) I don't think she could oversee anything, even a small town very well. She barely even seems high school educated; reminds me of miss teen south carolina. (I just saw she has a BS from U of Idaho, I'm stunned and disappointed) I'm also afraid TPTB would be able to manipulate her in office easily and turn her into a perfect puppet.

Maybe I'm overestimating average american intelligence, it could be. But aren't there plenty of thoughtful people that could do her (former) job as well or better? Just saying I don't get the hoopla over her other than she's kinda hot.

Wow such venom over Palin miss using a legal defense fund? The article even stated the penalty would be monetary! Big victory guys!
It was stated that unlike other states there is not a defense fund for Alaskan office holders. How many of you even read the article? I bet you saw Palin implicated in ethics probe and wet yourselves with glee?
Twenty tries and a hit!

What ever happened to being a Moderate? Why are there so many scary crazy military industrial complex cheering letting the United States die right wing nut jobs?

Why is it that any of these nuts here something that is just barely reasonable instantly label it LIBERAL?

Seems like the good ole USA has just become unrecognizable anymore. I mean really how did all this happen? You get some person that was a gimick to out weigh the gimick of Obama, she turns out to be a total idiot and obviously so and these goobers just suck it up.

I am getting really embarrassed for our country.

After all these years of media these people have truly become brainwashed into handing over everything to the puppet masters without them exerting barely any effort to fleece us dry.

I'm convinced the Republican party needs to do the right thing and run Ron Paul in 2012. That would be the best thing for that party and for this country. However, unfortunately these fringe idiots are going to keep that from happening as the Repubs trot out their next abomination.

"The fund itself was not created by me nor is it controlled by me. Neither I nor my lawyer has received a penny from this fund," the GOP's 2008 vice presidential candidate said in a statement via her spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton.

Palin, who gives up her office Sunday, emphasized that she did not control the fund.

"I find the notion that I have taken any action pertaining to the legal defense trust fund misguided and factually in error," Palin said Wednesday. "I have not 'acted' relative to the defense fund, and it is misleading to say I have."

She was responding to a preliminary report suggesting she may have violated Alaska laws.

An investigator hired by the state Personnel Board recommended Palin refuse money from the defense fund and ask the state to pay legal fees for ethics complaints that have been dismissed.


Palin attorney Thomas Van Flein said the report is not final, however, and he is preparing "supplemental information" for the investigator.

"There has been no board finding of an ethics violation, and there is a detailed legal process to follow before there is a final resolution," Van Flein said in a statement to reporters.

He added, "Whatever you have seen was released in violation of law."


He added, "Whatever you have seen was released in violation of law."

The Palin Saga - Democrats Winning By Any Means

www.rightsidenews.com...


This brought to mind the sinister tactics used by Democrats against Republicans after the American Civil War that freed blacks from slavery.

Determined to keep blacks in virtual slavery after losing the Civil War, Democrats set about the task of ending Reconstruction and driving out of the South all Republicans, a result that kept blacks at the mercy of ruthless Democrats for over 100 years.

The facts about the horrors inflicted upon Republicans by Democrats are laid bare in the books "A Short History of Reconstruction" by Dr. Eric Foner
www.amazon.com...
and

"Unfounded Loyalty" by Wayne Perryman.
www.amazon.com...

The meticulous research by Foner and Perryman uncovered inhumanity by Democrats so startling as to seem surreal. Democrats, Perryman wrote, used every means possible to destroy Reconstruction including lynching, whippings, murder, intimidation, assassinations and mutilations.

Foner exposed how the Ku Klux Klan, that was founded in 1866 as a Tennessee social club and became the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party, spread into nearly every Southern state, launching a "reign of terror" against Republican leaders, black and white. The Klan lynched over 2,000 black Republicans and 1,000 white Republicans.


ruthless Democrats

The Klan lynched over 2,000 black Republicans and 1,000 white Republicans.


I agree I have never seen a group of more Fearful and vindictive people, I am not sure I understand their mind set.

I'll tell you how it happened. I watched it happen. The right-wing bought up the radio (Clearchannel) and Murdoch, the msm and then blasted Rush, O'reilly, hannity, etc all day long spewing the same lies over and over until the average joe found something to think. It was humorous at first watching them label the media "liberal" when they themselves owned it.

The tactics are so obvious and even when they are caught in a baldfaced lie (Cheney on Meet the Press) they just look you straight in the eye and say they never said Iraq was involved with Al-Quida.

That's exactly how they did it but I do believe that the same tactics only work on the brain-dead now. Palin can't see that and continues to spew the same rhetoric but then she is one of the brain-dead herself. nuff said

Alaska, where the men are men and so are the women.


"Ethics probe" is that like an "Alien probe?"

Betcha they are ice cold up that way.

That's interesting, because Obama quit the Senate to become president. Also, "quitters."

Thank you everso much for reminding me. If you had of bothered to have read the thread you would know that this has been pointed out perhaps 10 times.

What do you think about the actual probe into Gov. Palins ethics? Or do you like so many others think that Gov. Palin is a "Hot" "MILF" and would like to explore other avenues of "probes"?

Yeah, he quit to become president. It's really more like taking a promotion, when you think about it.

Palin quit to... go fishing? Write a book? Avoid her ethics scandals?

Little hard to compare the two honestly.
