PALIN'S LATEST SCREW-UP

It looks like Sarah Moosebreath Palin has gotten herself into hot water again.

From The Daily Beast:

BS Top - Blumenthal Palin Ross 174
The governor is reeling after nominating for attorney general a man who allegedly defended the right of men to rape their wives. Now, Max Blumenthal reports, she may dump him to save herself.

While priming her political machine for a likely 2012 presidential primary run, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has fomented a scandal that threatens to further erode her reputation in the Last Frontier. In March, Palin nominated Wayne Anthony Ross for attorney general. Ross, a colorful far-right lawyer and longtime Palin ally who sports his initials, W.A.R., on his Hummer’s vanity plates, was once considered a shoo-in for confirmation. However, his nomination was thrown into grave peril when his opponents presented evidence that he called homosexuals “degenerates,” hailed the “courage” of a student who lionized the Ku Klux Klan, vowed to undermine the sovereignty of Native American tribes, and allegedly defended men who rape their wives. According to two sources close to the confirmation hearings, Palin may ask Ross to withdraw before his appointment comes to a vote.

**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
According to Burton, who detailed the allegations for me, Ross allegedly declared during a speech before a 1991 gathering of the “father’s rights” group Dads Against Discrimination, “If a guy can’t rape his wife, who’s he gonna rape?”

******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
...as pro-Palin forces attempted to push back against Ross’s critics, dozens of op-eds Ross authored during the 1980s and 1990s surfaced as key exhibits in the case against his confirmation. Among them is a 1993 piece entitled, “KKK ‘art’ project gets ‘A’ for courage,” in which Ross cheered on a local college student who had offended an African-American classmate by creating a statue of a Klansman with a cross in one hand and a flag in the other. “It might have been fun to see [the African-American student] try to remove the display,” Ross wrote. “Then she could have been arrested and her future as a student of the university could have been resolved through the university disciplinary proceedings.



This is really gonna help Moosebreath in 2012 isn't it!

More! More! Every time she does something - anything! - she steps on her weenie. I think a Palin-Bachmann ticket is the way for the Repugs to go in '12. And again in '16. And in ...

YES! YES! Go Palin. Go Bachmann. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Can we add Joe the Plumber in there as VP?

Grandpa Eddie said...

Nancy - I think Joe the Non-Plumber, and noted tax evader, would be better suited for the IRS.

Ross sounds just like the kind of person Palin feels most comfortable around...now, if he could only raise the dead.

".....if he could only raise the dead."

Good thing that'll never happen, Jacob.
He'd be raising bigoted cretins like himself.
