Sarah Palin discovers the obvious
Sarah Palin finally appointed a Democrat to the vacant Alaska Senate seat, ending weeks of extremely childish behaviour by the governor, who was happily playing political games at the expense of Juneau voters.
In this long process, she tried to turn the law upside down, received dodgy advice from her "Attorney General" and insulted the intelligence of the Senate Democrats by appointing people who had only very recently become "Democrats". Sarah Palin tried everything to have her own way, all her appointments going against the wishes of the local Democratic party.
This is what she had to say when the matter was resolved:
"It became more and more obvious that the Senate Democrats were looking for someone that was going to be acceptable by the local Democrat party."
Duh? Wasn't it obvious from the start? Did she really expect them to accept a Republican?
If things were reversed, I don't think a Democrat would have been acceptable to the local "Republic" party...
