This sounds right to me, but I need to take a look at the actual report. Two quick points. 1) I think one of the aspects forgotten in this “controversy” is that Palin is not that popular among the Republican political class in Alaska. And while I think the AK GOP probably rallied to her cause somewhat, the “this is a bipartisan report” mantra ignores that fact (and others, of course). Second, while I am sure that there are plenty of people who are honestly and deeply disturbed by the Palin’s “abuse of power,” I doubt there are too many of them. And, those who are seriously upset about how this reflects on Palin, might ponder that this sort of ethical violation doesn’t even move the ethics-o-meter needle in Obama’s Chicago. And, they might explain to me why Bill and Hillary’s firing of the White House travel office — orders of magnitude more egregious than what is alleged about Palin — was no big deal.
Anyway, I’m out of here. Taking the family on a picnic.
