Sarah Palin was accused of abusing her power as governor of Alaska by trying to get her brother in law fired after he divorced her sister. When the state safety commissioner refused to fire him she fired the commissioner and is now under investigation for abusing her power. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/01/palin-trooper-scandal-cou_n_122903.html But what makes this so ill the republicans have been doing their darndest to deflect attention away from the scandal. Their tactic is to hold these nasty anti-Obama rallies over the past week where they have been playing the race card for all it's worth. Palin got the crowd fired up calling Obama a terrorist and an Arab and the crowd of republicans just went insane yelling "Klll him, kill him," ""Off with his head," "No Black president." It got so bad that McCain felt ccompelled to stand up and defend Obama saying he was an honorable man and a family man, a christian, etc. But the crowd booed him and went on screaming for blood. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2008254592_mccain110.html?syndication=rss Sarah Palin is using her disabled baby as a campaign prop. To show you how nasty her whole family is. Her husband got up to speak and handed the baby to Palin's little girl. The six year old child proceeded to lick her hand from the wrist to her finger tips and then slick the baby's hair down with her spit. Now you know she would not be doing this unless she had seen her mother do it. The news commentators were exclaiming "Oh isn't she cute. She look like Obama's little girl," Excuse me? I don't think so. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/04/piper-palin-photos-pictur_n_123781.html?page=18 If these nasty, backwoods baby mama-daddy miscreants steal the whitehouse as they did the last two times that will be the last straw. There will be no way to revive the hope that Obama represents and the world will come down on this country with both feet.
