Keeping up on the intrigue and detail of everyday Joe 6 Pick Sarah Palin, it turns out not only is her family worth over a million dollars, but the bitch done cheated on her taxes too:

“Palin, it appears, did not pay taxes on the more than $60,000 of travel reimbursements that she and her family members reportedly billed the state during her 18 months as governor.”

It further appears that the Republican machine is doing everything in their power to stop the release of the Troopergate investigation:

Texas-based Liberty Legal Institute and Anchorage attorney Kevin Clarkson, representing the group of anti-investigation legislators, filed the emergency appeal.

“The plaintiffs and Alaskans will suffer irreparable harm if the investigation at issue continues and if the resulting investigative report issues as planned on Oct. 10, 2008,” they wrote in their appeal.

Yup, you heard right. Alaska will suffer if the investigation goes through. Doesn’t get much more desperate than that.

In an expose on the GOP machines reliance on the image of economic and energy efficiency by increased drilling entitled Drill, Baby, Drill: How the Media Has Influenced America’s Perception of Drilling to Solve the Energy Crisis:

However, McCain’s campaign seems to have convinced the American public that offshore drilling is a great idea. For example, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll released in late July, 69% of respondents supported increased offshore drilling, while 30% opposed it. Even more striking, 51% of respondents believed that if the ban on offshore drilling were lifted, gas prices would go down within the next year. The talk of drilling has also reopened the perennial debate over increased drilling in Alaska. Although McCain himself has not advocated for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), his running mate, Sarah Palin, is all for it. Based on the chants of “Drill, baby, drill!” that greeted her on stage at the Republican convention, so are many Republicans.

Otherwise, worth a read: “Terrorist” has been redefined by the Maryland State Police. If you oppose the death penalty or against the war in Iraq-now are a “terrorists.”, Are We Sure About Pending Collapse of Ad-Supported Internet?, Republicans, Ron Paul Was Your Only Hope, Teacher Calls 6th Grader Muslim Student a Terrorist, What capitalism does to workers when it thinks it can get away with it, and Can you afford to get sick?

    The “Drill Baby Drill!” contingent is willing to sell out America’s coastlines to ensure the contributions from Big Oil keep rolling in. I don’t know which is more shameful – that they are employing the same scare-mongering tactics they used to garner support for the invasion of Iraq, or that America keeps buying the bullshit the politicians are selling.
