Unfortunately for her rabid detractors, Palin’s fashionable footwear only dropped after having been wedged up their backsides.
No doubt some have heard or spread rumors that Sarah Palin only resigned because a major scandal has been brewing. In fact, some on the right have wondered if that was a possibility.
Turns out the speculation was about corruption and quid pro quo concerning the construction of her house and the Wasilla Sports Complex. One Democrat blogger in Alaska was certain this was the case.
So whence cometh the footwear wedging?
Let’s start with the response from Palin’s attorney, available here at Conservatives4Palin:
On July 3rd, 2009, Governor Sarah Palin announced her intent to resign her gubernatorial duties and transfer the powers of Governor to Lt. Governor Sean Parnell.
Almost immediately afterwards, several unscrupulous people have asserted false and defamatory allegations that the “real” reasons for Governor Palin’s resignation stem from an alleged criminal investigation pertaining to the construction of the Wasilla Sports Complex. This canard was first floated by Democrat operatives in September 2008 during the national campaign and followed up by sympathetic Democratic writers.1. It was easily rebutted then as one of many fabrications about Sarah Palin. Just as power abhors a vacuum, modern journalism apparently abhors any type of due diligence and fact checking before scurrilous allegations are repeated as fact.
Be sure to read it all, the last paragraph is the best part. Sarah Palin may not have huge feet, but I get the sense she now has the time and lack of official encumbrances to make her idiot critics and slanders wonder how such tiny feet can feel so painful once applied to what they’ve been thinking with.
This claim that she is being investigated takes a further hit from the FBI office in Alaska. From the LA Times:
"There is absolutely no truth to those rumors that we're investigating her or getting ready to indict her," Special Agent Eric Gonzalez said in a phone interview Saturday. "It's just not true." He added that there was "no wiggle room" in his comments for any kind of inquiry. (Thanks to HotAir Headlines)
It really would be satisfying it Sarah Palin ended up owning several liberal media outlets or at least pushed them into bankruptcy over all this. It’s doubtful that will happen but one can still dream. At the very least the unfolding story that Sarah Palin has begun should be fun and exciting to watch.
