Today's Sarah Palin flip-flop revelations concerning Troopergate:
From Howard Kurtz' Media Notes, Washingtonpost.com, Sept. 18, 2008
"Sarah Palin's latest explanation for why she fired Walt Monegan is that he had gone over her head in seeking federal money for an initiative to combat sexual assault crimes, before she had approved the program," says TPM's Zachary Roth.
"But it now appears that the program in question is one that most elected officials would be wary of admitting they hadn't strongly backed. According to Peggy Brown, who heads the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Monegan wanted to use the federal money to hire retired troopers and law enforcement officials, and assign them to investigate the most egregious cases of sexual assault -- including those against children.
"In other words, if Palin's new story is true, she fired Monegan for being too aggressive in going after child molesters."
Prompting the New Republic's Christopher Orr to observe:
"If the Obama Campaign Were the McCain Campaign . . . how long do you think it would be before they cut an ad claiming that, as Alaska governor, Sarah Palin wanted to go easy on child molesters?"
Alaska, by the way, has one of the HGHEST rates of sexual assault and rape in the United States (all 50 of 'em)! And she fired the state police commissioner for seeking funds to help STOP that?!?!?!
The women is a kook! Please, someone defend THAT!!!!
