Palin abused power, violated law in firing commissioner

She is not going to shake this one off with a wink at the camera.
An ethics inquiry in Alaska has found Sarah Palin abused her power as governor and violated state ethics law when she fired the state's public safety commissioner, according to a report released Friday.

The news came shortly after Alaska lawmakers voted unanimously to make public a report about the abuse-of-power investigation into Palin, the U.S. Republican vice-presidential nominee.

Palin was accused of firing the commissioner because he refused to dismiss a state trooper involved in a bitter divorce and custody fight with Palin's sister.

It occurs to me that should the unthinkable happen, and the Republicans return to power, then there is at least an escape route. Once McCain dies and Palin steps forward, she can be replaced. The plot is laid out in a movie that starred Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. We simply replace Palin with Tina Fey - and just like that we have someone in the White House who is a real live sentient human being. Wouldn't that be a change for the better?
