Which Maverick VP Candidate Has Been Shilling For Indicted Sen. Ted Stevens? (Hint: It's Not Joe Biden)
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has only been on the national scene for 5 days, but it’s already clear that she's a Maverick with a capital M. We've learned that she launched an ethics probe against the state GOP chairman and backed her Lieutenant Governor in his race against notoriously corrupt Rep. Don Young. Clearly we’re dealing with an independent mind.
And while we're at it, why did her website feature a video of Stevens endorsing her up through last week?
Could it be because she’d been hitting up Stevens and his Senate Appropriations Committee for $27 million worth of federal pork projects for her hometown of Wasilla, population 8.471? Or because she’s now asking Stevens for another $197.8 million in federal earmarks in next year's federal budget?
Or maybe it’s just that, as a fellow Alaska Republican, it’s Palin’s duty to stand tall with Stevens as he awaits trial. But historical precedent suggests otherwise…
You didn't see ex-Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco defending fellow Democrat William Jefferson when the latter was found to be hoarding $90,000 worth of bribe money in a freezer. And unless we missed it, Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter certainly hasn’t been performing restroom blowjobs to show solidarity with Sen. Larry Craig.
But I guess ignoring precedents is what made Palin a Maverick to being with.
