Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

"I can't say it, but it rhymes with rich"

Well, it's official. The Special Prosecutor, appointed by the Republican legislature in Alaska, found Gov. Sarah Palin abused her office to pursue a personal vendetta against her ex-brother-in-law, a state police trooper. She tried repeatedly to get the Commissioner to fire him, and when he refused, she fired the Commissioner. The report was released Friday, October 10, 2008. From page 8, see Finding #1:

I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110 (a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act. Alaska Statute 39.52.110 (a) provides: "The legislature reaffirms that each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust."

It seems the nastiness Palin has brought to the campaign trail is not an act. Time for Americans to start seriously asking, "Who is Sarah Palin?" The answer may be the same as former first lady Barbara Bush gave when she described the first female Vice-Presidential candidate, Geraldine Ferraro. (For those of you who may not remember, it is the title of this post.)

Dr S,

You know this posting would have been THE hot post just 10 days ago. But it says a lot about her down fall in the last week or so that this revelation does not really change too many minds or generate a lot of interest. It's not that this isn't important. It's that most people who are inclined to believe anything bad about Wasilla's village idiot have already registered a negative opinion of her. Everyone else will dismiss this as "partisan politics."

It could well be that most persuadable people have already assumed that this report would contain what it contains.

I'm not criticizing Dr. S's post. Far from it. I think this is a very note worthy event. And it was very interesting to see it up and see the lack of reaction.

So, is there any kind of law saying that someone who acts in this kind of way automatically disqualifies themselves from being allowed to run for Vice/President? LTG?

Or is it a pre-requisite now, after the Bush/Cheney years? (yes, that last question is kinda tongue in cheek, but I'm guessing no-one here is enough of a fan of theirs to take offence...)

LTG is currently occupied (actually he and Seventh Sister are visiting me along with Law Talking Baby) and they are still in bed - they're on vacation!

There's nothing in the Constitution about criminal past disqualifying you from running. This kind of thing, however, is exactly what the people who wrote the Constitution had in mind when they put this claus in: "Article II Section 4. The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."

Also, this report is not the same thing as a conviction so technically Palin has not been convicted of a crime. She's only been accused by the legislature. It's a damning report though especially given how similar her behavior seems to be the hugely unpopular Dick Cheney.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
