So now we apparently have the smoking gun (or the metaphorical "nekkid pitchers") that show us Governor Sarah Palin as I always intuited her to be. She is a "Mean Girl" indeed; signed, sealed, delivered: she's yours. As in, not mine.
This whole affair, since it is apparently known that McCain was aware of "Trooper Gate" up-front, makes me wonder if Palin's willingness to use the power of her office against her personal enemies wasn't exactly what "qualified" her for a role in the neocon passion play in the first place? If you seek Dick Cheney in lipstick, look no further. But she must have convinced them that she'd beat the rap. Where was Sarah's Scooter?
