Reading comprehension 101

Let's be honest, Sarah Palin is a very good natural politician. Her delivery is virtually flawless and her ability to connect with the Republican base has been likened to Reagan.

However, we also have to be honest and acknowledge that she lies like a dog. Take TrooperGate. The report was pretty clear, if a little like War and Peace in terms of length, that she abused her power. Period. She's saying it vindicates her which the dummies out in the hinterlands will believe because they are the product of Republican education systems and don't know how to read anything more complex than the graphics on Fox News.

For the rest of us who will not read the report (seriously, don't you have something better to do?) there's this from the Anchorage Daily News.

Sarah Palin's reaction to the Legislature's Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation.

She claims the report "vindicates" her. She said that the investigation found "no unlawful or unethical activity on my part."

Her response is either astoundingly ignorant or downright Orwellian.

Page 8, Finding Number One of the report says: "I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act."

In plain English, she did something "unlawful." She broke the state ethics law.

Perhaps Gov. Palin has been too busy to actually read the Troopergate report. Perhaps she is relying on briefings from McCain campaign spinmeisters.
