Let them posture all they want...at this point I think that even if they do find abuse...which we all pretty well can tell they will, its become a non issue. If I were in her position I would have wanted the guy fired too. It amazes me that he never was.

I believe the lawmakers investigating this were in a picture taken at the Alaska Obama headquarters in July. This is a political witchhunt!

I'd be willing to bet this gets tied up in court and no one will be supoened or have to testify until after the election.

She went after the guy who was protecting Wooten. The charges against Wooten include - not limited to - tasering a 10 year old, threatening her father he’d ‘eat lead’, harassing Eskimos, poaching. Ms Palin asked ‘Why is this guy still representing the state police?” Fair question in anyone’s mind.

I doubt it will affect Palin in a negative way.

Wolfe Spitzer on CNN is hammering this story more than coverage on the ‘cane in the GOM. This too will backfire. Carry on demonrats.

I don’t think the general public really cares about this. It’s just all so stupid.

I sure hope the McCain-Palin campaign knows what they are going, because on the face of it this doesn't look so good. I am not saying that anything damaging will come out of this investigation, but just keeping the topic in the news is a net plus for the RATs.

Those investigating this have guaranteed it will be done by the election. This is a political witchhunt.

Seems time for that picture of the investigator to be used to show the media witch hunt is being run by Obama’s minion.

Indeed they were, and it has had wide circulation. These people are nuts to continue this, but then again, they are Democrats.

Probably, but it won't keep it from being covered by the media.

Also, I should add if Gallup and Rasmussen come out tomorrow with polls showing McCain up say +1 instead of +3 (or +4/+5 on Gallup a few days ago), the media will play this as trending Obama, proving that the negative attacks are working.

a potentially ominous turn for her party

AP wet dream. We've all seen the picture of the 3 so-called "investigators" who are among the 12 Obambi supporters in Alaska, all holding up Obambi signs and smiling pretty for the camera.
