BOO: Did She Scare You Too?

October 21st, 2008 | by Windspike |


I was out on my morning run today, heading past one of the local neighborhoods that sponsor some serious competitions for scary Halloween decoration. Amidst the witches, ghosts, goblins, I noticed this image of Sarah Palin. Was this an endorsement or meant to scare me? I think the latter. I actually burst out laughing out loud, despite running up hill at the same time. Some one has a very interesting sense of humor.

In the less than funny department…In even worsening news for the McSame Palin ticket, we find that Ms. Palin is playing fast and loose with the ethics again - a lot like George Bush Sr.’s fuzzy math. It may not be against the law, but it’s rather fuzzy ethically to travel to luxury hotels on State Taxpayer dollars:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Gov. Sarah Palin charged the state for her children to travel with her, including to events where they were not invited, and later amended expense reports to specify that they were on official business.

The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for three daughters to join Palin to watch their father in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with 17-year-old Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel.

    If you think robocalling is bad, I see in this YouTube video that McCain’s campaign is outsourcing their calls to India! I guess that’s what you have to do when you can’t find enough “real Americans” to be your volunteers. This is a pretty hysterical behind-the-scenes look at the McCain campaign through the eyes of Martin Eisenstadt (the guy who ‘leaked’ that Joe “the Plumber” was linked to Charles Keating):

    WS,
    Actually, doctoring expense reports is illegal. For most people, it’s called fraud. Does this not apply to politicians on tax payer’s expenses?

    So if elected I guess we will have to pay for her children to follow her around everywhere. Apparently she does not want to pay for a babysitter, at least not out of her pocket.
