Insane Jesufascist hillbilly Alaska Governor Sarah ‘Talibunny’ Palin is facing her 10,000th ethics complaint by an infallible witness to the truth who claims her collection of per diem payments to stay at home, instead of residing in the governor’s mansion in Juneau or accepting the fact that she is a commuter employee who drives to work at a state office building, is a criminal enterprise amounting to an illegal increase in salary, Stinque.com has learned.
Alaskan civic hero Zane Henning filed his complaint with the state and fired off a blistering, righteous press release this week charging the Talibunny with grasping nickel-dime profiteering at state expense:
“I am charging that the Governor has given herself a raise for personal gain by using the per diem process, which is in direct conflict with Section 39.52.120. (a) of the Alaska Executive Ethics Act,” Henning wrote. “The State of Alaska provides housing in the state’s capital of Juneau for our Governor, so there should be no extra expense if she desires to stay in her own home. More than a thousand state employees commute from the Mat-Su Valley daily and none of them get to pocket free money.”
Eight years later, after serving a term as President George H.W. Bush’s housing secretary, he made it onto the national ticket as Bob Dole’s running-mate.
With that loss, the Republican bowed out of political office, but not out of politics. In speaking engagements and a syndicated column, he continued to advocate for the tax reform and supply-side policies — the idea that the more taxes are cut the more the economy will grow — that he pioneered.
Not to speak ill of the dead, but I will. Benjamin Disraeli said it best:
“He was distinguished for ignorance; for he had only one idea, and that was wrong.”
David Ogden (that’s him in the picture, on the right), who President Obama has nominated to serve as deputy attorney general, is under fire from Republicans because, in the words of a former Bush Justice official:
Ogden has been an activist in support of a right to pornography, a right of abortion and the rights of homosexuals.
This is an extremely radical position of course, since the first two of those three things are rights we definitely already have. And even most of the Neanderthals who are against gay marriage use cryptic language about the sanctity of marriage instead of declaring themselves against “the rights of homosexuals.” Read more »
