Troopergate - the alternate view

I'll be proudly voting Palin/McCain this November, and I wish no good thing for the Obama campaign, but I've been shocked and disappointed at how badly the Obama campaign has handled Palin's "Troopergate."

Instead of suggesting that Palin improperly tried to get her former brother in law fired, they should use it to point out that Palin isn't effective enough to do the job. After all, the guy still has his job. After his own department found that he'd drunk alcohol while driving his patrol car, tasered his son and threatened to kill Palin and her father, he got a 5 day suspension.

I mean, if Obama (or Biden) had a cop/ex-brother in law threatening to kill Obama's family, the guy would be dead and stuffed in a barrel at the bottom of Lake Michigan.

'Cause that's the Chicago way.

We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
