Enigma-
Please update on how this is being spun on tv.

Annette said...

MSNBC is talking it up. David Shuster in for Olbermann saying she abused her power and violated the public trust.
That's about it. No word yet from the McCain camp or Palin camp as of yet. They are not together at this time.

enigma4ever said...

Okay....so they have started interviewing people on TV...Keith is off and it is Shuster...

(1) First Interviews, Savanah Gutherie raised questions about how involved TODD PALIN was with 16 different employees- said that it jumps out at you in the 260 page report...

(2) Lawrence ODonnelll did bring up that this is a problem for the McCain people, and that it brings up TRUST issues....

Most people are nervous discussing because they have not yet seen or read the report...but I will put their comments when I get them..

*** DO DOWNLOAD the report- 260 pages....( guess I know what I am doing tonight..)

enigma4ever said...

"She violatd her office, using her office for personal gain...Ethics law violated..."

( I do question if Todd is NOT an employee HOW was he allowed to DO ALL THIS ? and WHY ? he works for BP- 95,000 /year job....)

Fineman:::
Interviewed by phone:::
They have been trying to muddy the waters about Obama, and it now raises questions about Palin and HOW she runs things up in Alaska, this is politcally damaging to the Repugs and MCCaina and Palin- it makes it look like Repug Politics as usual..

Shuster- :doesn't it look like she lied to the people of AK?

does n't this undermine her credibility ???

Fineman:: yeah- this makes them look like regular old school repug poltiics....WHERE do they go from her- they can try to denounce it and blame the dems and the MSM...it muddys the waters NOW....and now she is a Liability in the campaign....

enigma4ever said...

NOW Rachel::

Did she abuse her power by firing the Safety Officer ?
Yes....

I will report the Palin update as she interviews people....

thanks Annette and hairball...

enigma4ever said...

Rachel will update the story interviewing Walt Monegan and also Ishikiff...

Hairball said...

Thanks for sharing what is happening on cable! I can only get CBS on my little 5 inch TV and my computer is being cranky again so I can't play any video clips. *grumble grumble*

I read a couple of pages of the report and then I check the blogs for updates. It will take me a while to get through it as I don't want to miss anything in the blogosphere! *grins*

enigma4ever said...

Rachel is Kicking Ass about the McCain HATE ralllies....awesome...so grateful....

enigma4ever said...

Ishnikoff being interviewed about the Findings of the investigation....he is reading the report to Rachel....
sorry- was distracted about a cat battle..

enigma4ever said...

Rachel interviewed Monegan and he did say that he feels some peace about all of this...( and after her "truth squad " has been defaming him and calling him "rogue"...)

Dada said...

Oh God...Palin is so, so brilliant -- she's getting her impeachment over with BEFORE taking over as vice president! What a stratagem!

enigma4ever said...

Dada:::
yeah- how effecient of her !!!LOL..

OKAY MORE ON THE MESS..
MCCAIN STATEMENT::: @ 9:54 PM....
The Inquiry was Partisan and supported by Obama supporters....

( except it was not...)

One Fly said...

McPain could blow a gasket over this.

enigma4ever said...

Hello One Fly..yeah..we have not heard WHAT McGramps thinks???

as of 10:30 PM there are over 3200 articles on this......OUCH....

Hairball said...

I went to McCain's website and was shocked, shocked I tell you, that I couldn't find anything about the report. I'm curious to hear more about how they will spin this so that she is a maverick reformer who does whatever is necessary to protect the innocent, incontinent, insane, whatever...

tom said...

Like I said
she is folding like a broken deck chair
and she is taking McSame with her
OH, and Cindy McSame, ha ha
sounds like a poor little rich girl can't buy THIS election so she has to POUT
This is the Perfect Shit Storm they set rolling down the road, I hope they enjoy it

enigma4ever said...

ahhh Hairball - you are so funny....the Incontinent are protected ???

omg...you made me laugh my head off...

Yeah, I checked too...hmmm..well well..the spinmasters will be up all night ...and meanwhile FOX is covering the missing 3 yr old in Florda...
omg....

What will they do...

enigma4ever said...

Hey tom..yup...one big shithstorm..and yes, you are right...a broken deck chair....on the Titannical Campaign McCain Deck...

Hairball said...

enigma4ever said...

"ahhh Hairball - you are so funny....the Incontinent are protected ???"

*snort* Firefox was trying to help me spell and gave incontinent as a possibility when I accidentally misspelled innocent. The mind, it wanders off at times...

enigma4ever said...

welllll we were talking about McCain....LOL

freudian typing ?

Hairball said...

*snort* As soon as I saw it, I had to find a way to add it to my reply.

enigma4ever said...

I am still laughing ;-O

Hairball said...

I'm sure someone has already come up with this but, we should start chanting 'spin, baby, spin' whenever Palin and McCain are shown on TV.

Troy - a.k.a. Whiteline said...

Enigma - http://download1.legis.state.ak.us/DOWNLOAD.pdf is the file for the Branchflower report. Grabbed it for my "Screaming-at-the-TV" blog a little while ago - just getting to sit and read now.

Grab some coffee girl, you'll need it!

:)

enigma4ever said...

thanks Troy ....I put two different addresses above- one does work better than the other...and I have been reading it ( and ONE Question Comes to Mind- SO does the First DUDE work for the State ????if not someone got some splaining to do ?????)

Hairball...
OMG ..that is brilliant..
Or maybe people should start going to Rallies and ask about ETHICS ????HOW does she feel about Ethics ???

Substitute Teacher / retired Newsguy said...

And here's the kicker. The panel included TEN REPUBLICANS and FOUR DEMOCRATS.

enigma4ever said...

Newsguy....
I KNOW....how wonderful.....

Hairball said...

Ethics? We don't need no stinking ethics!!

Hairball said...

If Palin were to be elected, Todd would share her duties.

The Republicans must think those of us who were around during the Clinton years have forgotten their complaints about when Bill and Hilary tried to sell themselves as 'buy one get one free' in terms of how their administration would be run. *rolls eyes*

enigma4ever said...

Okay the part of the report that has the REAL meat and potatoes is the Section VII- the Case materials and Evidence..HOLY crap...all about Todd...and yes, after mulling through even 10 pages I could see them all on Jerry Springer....

lordy White Trash Theater.......

Hairball said...

I haven't gotten to that part yet. Thanks for the heads up!

They've got to go on Maury Povich too.
Isn't he the one with the infamous "Who's the Daddy?" episodes??

enigma4ever said...

omg...yes...any show with DNA swabbing...yup;.....but yeah- the Evidence Section is very very juicy...and well, disturbing...

Hairball said...

I'm reading right now about when Monegan's secretary got the call to set up an appointment bewteen Monegan and Todd Palin in the Governor's office. (The Hell??)

enigma4ever said...

I KNOW I KNOW ???? wtf??? how in the world....and did she think that if she USED Todd that made it all legal - legit ??? or what ....

Hairball said...

Surely the state of Alaska has laws about who can conduct state business?? How can this BS not be in violation? Or is it one of those "hairdryer in the bathtub" things were nobody dreamed that anybody would do that and so it was never addressed??

Troy - a.k.a. Whiteline said...

Hey did you see that the Secret Svc was investigating the "kill him" dude from FL? and Johnny Mac is toning down his crap - telling his nazi thugs in the audience to chill (kinda) wonder if the SS talked to him as well?

Enigma you have power... ;)

enigma4ever said...

Troy::
I have been very serious about the Secret Service issue- once I realized the hatemogering rallies were here in Ohio...and then Obama and McCains rallies were overlapping each other on the trail- it hit me how dangerous it was that McCain was feeding this level of Unhunged Anger here.....it stunned me- so yeah I wrote them a letter...and I do know others called....( if I had known the Ohio Letter I would have called)....

I don't think I had power...I think alot of people recognized the peril of this situation which McCain and Palin were inciting...and I did mention in my letter that they are enabling and inciting this dangerous situation and that they should be held responsible....It is up to all of us to protect Obama...and his family....

I hope the SS keep up the work and yes, maybe they should sit down and have a chat with Palin and McCain....

Hairball::
from what I have heard from some Alaska folk they are indeed looking into that very issue...and yes....it has not come up before not like this- according to the people that live there....it's like a Tony Soprano situation....the Dude was used to Lean on People....

Latest Electoral Number as a beddy-bye gift...

Obama 348.3 McCain 189.7

( as of tonight....whoa.. wow....)

enigma4ever said...

another must read Todd statement pdf- pages 5 and 6,....really amazing,......

HelenWheels said...

Hey Enigma, now I wish I had kept it, but I recall reading somewhere that the religion the Palin's belong to (whatever the hell it is) has some sort of rule where the husband has to always be in charge, and that's why he works with her? Because it's against their religion for HER to officially make decisions?

I am beating myself over the head that I didn't link it, because from what I remember it sounded pretty legit.
