Posted on 07/22/2009 3:42:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
--snip--Good evening.A diversified show tonight. We begin with, in New Orleans, James Carville, the CNN political contributor and Democratic strategist.
And in Washington, Liz Cheney, the former deputy assistant secretary of State in the administration of President George W. Bush and the daughter of the former vice president, Dick Cheney.
Let's start with the latest concerning the soon to be former governor of Alaska.
A.P. reports, guys, that an independent_investigator for the Alaska Personnel Board has found evidence that Sarah Palin may have violated ethics laws by accepting private donations to pay her legal bills.
How much trouble could this mean for her, James?
JAMES CARVILLE, CNN CONTRIBUTOR, CLINTON SUPPORTER: Yes, probably, honestly, not_a lot. I mean she's leaving office, she might get an ethics finding against her. It's clear that the Palins are strapped for money. And that's why she's leaving office. She wants to go out and make money. And she was trying to raise_money to pay for some of this stuff. And from what we know, it might have been something untold about it.
But I don't think that she's in a great deal of trouble.
I mean, who cares?
She's not going to be governor any more, so let the ethics board have some finding against her and she'll go out and make a gazillion_dollars writing books and going out to all these right-wing people and giving speeches and stuff.
CARVILLE: I don't -- I don't view this as anything shocking or surprising.
KING: All right.
Good point, Liz?
LIZ CHENEY, FORMER DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE: Well, I think, you know, we've seen a pretty clear pattern here, where Governor Palin's political enemies, you know, have launched attacks against her. I don't know about the -- the details of this latest ethics charge.(continued)

Hey pissant...you missed one....PING!!
James Carville (DNC): "It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing. Romney is an ascendant guy."
EEK! I expect to see a forked tongue come slithering out of that snake’s head!!
Did he really say “ascendant” or was it “ass ended”? Em’ Cajun wannabees are slick with the words you know.
