Sarah Palin becomes just another politician

Yael T. Abouhalkah wrote a succinct editorial in the Kansas City Star that takes the position that Sarah Palin isn't any different from the other politicians, in Sarah Palin becomes just another politician

Abouhalkah cites "Palin's refusal to cooperate with a bipartisan investigation of her role in the firing Alaska's public safety commissioner" as a reason to believe that Palin isn't the corruption fighting maverick outsider that the McCain campaign is trying to paint her.

For more information on the incident, The Washington post has a good article here on Palin's refusal to cooperate with investigators along with some other interesting notes about her tenure as governor.

A maverick outsider, who is going to shake up Washington. I don't think we've tried that yet...wait wasn't that the same label that the Republicans painted George W. Bush. The more I learn about her, the more the comparison fits. 

Bonus content: The AP is reporting that Palin says "Thanks" but doesn't say no-Thanks when that wasteful earmarked federal money builds a $600 million bridge to her home town of Wasilla.

I hope she didn't get money to buy her house from a convicted criminal.
