Troopergate

So. The investigator's report concludes that "Governor Palin's firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercise of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads," but the investigator also wants to tell you it was really a violation of an ethics law.

Which part is getting reported in the MSM? I don't want to keep seeing the same hands every time, here.

Agreed--and weren't you recently speculating about what would happen were the bias was 10x worse?

Which part of the report, Gov. Palin's exoneration or the investigator's snarky and irrelevant remark, is being reported? Does anyone have to ask?

Here in Sacramento, California the blow-dried hairdos on the newsroom set are still referring to "Troopergate." How soon they forget that the real Troopergate was then-gov. bill clinton's use of Arkansas state troopers to procure women for him.

Still, this whole episode demonstrtes (once again!) that Americans take for granted that Democrats are sleaze (and therefore their bad behavior is considered no big deal) but Republicans are expected to be virtuous and perfect (so even the flimsiest accusation against them must be treated like a felony conviction).
