CA fundraisers cancelled WA fundraisers cancelled Palin Dumped from Iran Rally Cancels 9/18 VA Rally Cancels Sunday Miami Rally due to weather - 30% chance of rain Cancelled WY visit to go to UN Tampa Visit Cancelled for second time Now that Palin has really been vetted by someone - i.e. the press - and her poll bubble has burst more is on the horizon. Troopergate is VERY real. So real that McCain's team has essentially inserted itself in the matters of a sovereign US state. Why is this "Rambo" O'Callaghan involved? Todd Palin has now refused to testify From AP: GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is effectively turning over questions about her record as Alaska's governor to John McCain's political campaign, part of an ambitious Republican strategy to limit any embarrassing disclosures and carefully shape her image for voters in the rest of the country. Republican efforts include dispatching a former top U.S. terrorism prosecutor from New York, Ed O'Callaghan, to assist Palin's personal lawyer working to derail or delay a pending ethics investigation in Alaska ... O'Callaghan is just part of a cadre of high-powered operatives patrolling Alaska as reporters and Democrats scrutinize every detail of Palin's tenure in government, plus her family and friends. One strategy: Carefully coordinate any information that's released. The McCain campaign is demanding that it becomes the de facto source for answers about the operations of Alaska's government during the past 20 months. I also guarantee you that Water Breakgate / Babygate has more to it than we ever will know - but I bet the Enquirer does and so does the McCain camp. How about tax evasion.
