Transparency No More
We've heard it countless times from the Republican Party. The mass media market is a tool of the liberals throughout the country. I wonder if they say the same thing of the Anchorage Daily News in Gov. Palin's home state of Alaska.
"Gov. Sarah Palin has surrendered important gubernatorial duties to the Republican presidential campaign. McCain staff are handling public and press questions about actions she has taken as governor. The governor who said, "Hold me accountable," is hiding behind the hired guns of the McCain campaign to avoid accountability." writes the Editorial Board in Saturday's paper.
What happened to transparency? What happened to accountability? Of course this isn't the FIRST action of the McCain campaign.
"Edward O'Callaghan, who until recently was co-chief of the terrorism and national security unit of the U.S. attorney's office in New York, and a former Palin spokeswoman now working for the national campaign, accused Monegan of a "rogue mentality" and "outright insubordination." They said he had flown to Washington, D.C., without Palin's approval to lobby for more police funding."
BUT WAIT. It gets better. Monegan's "outright insubordination" of flying to DC to lobby for more police funding was approved by Palin's Chief of Staff. Read about the authorization here. Maybe Gov. Palin will now tell voters that she didn't know what her Chief of Staff was doing when he authorized the Commissioner's trip to DC.
That darn liberally-biased media. No bias here. Just the facts. Or in this case, the tell-tale signature.
