Number 4:With Sarah Palin, Barack Obama Shows Rod Blagojevich How Pay-For-Play Is Done!
I wrote this earlier in the year, and posted it on my other blog at Townhall.com, but frankly, this fits right in with the theme of choice, and my ongoing open letters to Republicans in office. This was going on during the 2008 Presidential and the Republican party chose to stand back, and do nothing. John McCain's campaign chose to stand back, and do nothing, as well.
So what happened? The democrats were able to smear the reputation of a great Governor, with nothing but lies. And at least one of them, Senator Kim Elton benefited from pay-for-play with Obama.
And as always, the Republicans proved to be worthless at protecting their own.
Now since I originally posted this story, the Alaskan democrats tried to force one of the "troopergate" co-conspirators, Beth Kerttula, down Governor Palin's throat, as the replacement for Kim Elton. However, Governor Palin said no, and literally asked for resumes from any registered democrats in Juneau, Elton's district, who might be interested in being a Senator!
After much wrangling, Governor Palin was able to convince the democrats that it was in their best interest to accept former Juneau Mayor, Dennis Egan, whose father was Alaska's first Governor, rather than any of the four choices they had put out there, including their first choice, Beth Kerttula.With Sarah Palin, Barack Obama Shows Rod Blagojevich How Pay -For-Play Is Done!
Long before Americans learned about the sorted tails of, now impeached, Governor Rod Blagojevich, and his attempt to sell the Senate seat vacated by now President Barack Obama, there was a much more nefarious plot taking place in our northern most state.
