Todd Palin Testifies In ‘Troopergate,’ Is Basically Responsible For Everything

by Jim Newell

The First Lady of Alaska, Todd Palin, delivered a sworn statement about his role in “Troopergate” to investigators after an IN-THE-TANK Alaskan judge made him do so. In the testimony, Todd admits that he pushed for FIVE AND A HALF YEARS or so to get his ex-brother-in-law fired from the Police Force — but that his wife did not fire public safety commissioner Walt Monegan because of his refusal to do so. Todd claims that his wife fired Monegan because Monegan kept telling her to put baby Trig in car seats, and also something about “travelling to the Bush.” Hell is going on here?

Now this sounds particularly devastating — to the OBAMABOTS, the Liberals, who don’t care about such Main Street values as exerting undue influence in governmental decisions:

Todd Palin talked with over a dozen state officials, many of them repeatedly, in his crusade to get a state trooper fired whom he considered to be a bad cop, a dishonest person and a threat to the Palin family, according to his sworn statement given Wednesday to a legislative investigator.

The 25-page statement from Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband, in response to questions submitted by the investigator, shows that Todd Palin’s efforts started before his wife became governor and accelerated during the first 19 months of her administration.

If this state trooper was such an unsavory fellow who was making death threats and abusing gals or whatever, why didn’t the Palins just call other police officers and have him arrested, for breaking the law? Because that would be considerably less fun than PULLING STRINGS and using BACK CHANNELS of course.

Palin’s testimony denies that Governor Palin fired public safety commissioner Walt Monegan for refusing to fire this trooper. Instead, it was these weird things:

He said his understanding is that Monegan lost his job due to a “dispute with the governor and her staff over budget issues and failure to fill trooper vacancies.”

He also suggested there was bad blood between the governor and Monegan over two other matters:

1) An inquiry from Monegan to the governor about whether she once failed to put her Trig, her infant, in a car seat while she was driving.

2) The unavailability of a state trooper airplane for the governor’s use when traveling to the Bush.

Ha ha, so she fired Monegan because he thought she was a shittier mother than Britney Spears, and also because he wouldn’t lend her his plane when she wanted to go get some pussy. Also, this was after SHE SOLD HER OWN FREAKING PLANE.

And now Todd Palin is just cold getting stoned and snowmobiling, waiting for that full Troopergate report to come out tomorrow.

“Trooper”. Good name for Sarah McPalin’s next retard baby

I feel sorry for the moose population, Sarah’s going to be so angry that you won’t be around much longer.

bluebrazos October 9, 2008 at 3:06 pm

I’d pay to see Palin’s sister-in-law travel to her bush.

TGY October 9, 2008 at 3:07 pm

So much for the First Dud or whatever.

Cogito Ergo Bibo October 9, 2008 at 3:08 pm

And don’t forget he was fired because he wanted to go beg Congress for money to fight sex crimes, got permission to go and then was told he couldn’t because “Fix-My-House Stevens is taking care of that.” Heckuva job, Barbie.

Liverspots October 9, 2008 at 3:09 pm

Sounds like Palin was trying to have a post-birth abortion.

Rev. Juan MessyCan October 9, 2008 at 3:10 pm

Oh, how far the mighty have… Wait… we’re talking about the Palins? Never mind, the Snobilly fuckers deserve any and every bit of shame and ridicule we can heap on them.

And by “we can heap on them” I mean “they bring down upon themselves with their inbred trashy shenaningans.”

I just wish their trainwreck were nearly as innocuously entertaining as those of the Spears, Simpsons, Beverly Hillbillies, etc.

The First Dud indeed.

This Monegan guy must’ve been a horrible public servant — Palin’s fired him for like fifty reasons so far.

This is all a diversion from the REAL story … when Obama and Palin had their affair they typically used the state’s private jet, but Obama gets really gassy after moose-luvin so when Palin wanted to drill him for natural resources he broke it off, and no one wants a stinky farty jet so she sold it — TO THE KENYANS!!!

Texan Bulldoggette October 9, 2008 at 3:16 pm

Hey as long as Bible Spice didn’t drive off with Trig on the roof of the car or forget him in the bathroom at Wal-Mart (I know someone who actually did that), Walt needs to lay the hell off of Mr. & Mrs. Alaska.

How long until the Palins are shopping a reality show about their wacky exploits?

WendyK October 9, 2008 at 3:19 pm

Way to take one for the team, First Dude. Trying to paint the picture that wifey had no involvement. I seriously love this quote from him, “I talked about Wooten so much over the years that my wife told me to stop talking about it with her.” Can you imagine how that conversation went? I mean, assuming it actually happened, which we all know it didn’t.

Botswana Meat Commission FC October 9, 2008 at 3:19 pm

Are they sure the Palins didn’t strap Trig to the roof during one of their family road trips?

I bet the lawyers who prepared the affidaivit ended it with “I’m John McCain, and I approved this message” out of force of habit.

tednugentslover October 9, 2008 at 3:23 pm

they fired Monegan because he’s the one who named all their babies… they had a big argument because he suggested Mace Palin, Billy Club Palin, Pistol Palin, SquadKar Palin and they didn’t use any of them.

BobLoblawLawBlog October 9, 2008 at 3:23 pm

Wow, think he used McCain’s ghostwriter? There are real live complete sentences in his briefing.

hockeymom October 9, 2008 at 3:26 pm

Well, that’s what Todd says.
We’ll see tomorrow if anyone else has a different recollection…a memory of something with a bit more Sarah in it.

On the other hand, every fundie woman I know lets her husband run the show, 100-percent, so it’s possible she didn’t know what was going on.

Warning Vandalism at Todd Palin

This hasn’t occured yet but those who hate the Republican Party may try to vandalize this article. I am merely interested in this neat dude, champion racer and husband in the news. Some vandalism may be subtle, such as trying to remove positive information and make him look like a hick.

Aurelio October 9, 2008 at 3:48 pm

[re=128133]catsquatch[/re]: This is off topic, but innarresting: “Palin spent her childhood in Alaska’s Mat-Su Valley, which is where she got her distinctive manner of speaking. The next town over from Wasilla, Palmer, has a large settlement of Minnesotans—who were moved there by a government relief program in the 1930s—and features of the Minnesotan dialect are thus prominent in the Mat-Su Valley area. Hence the Fargo-like elements in Palin’s speech, in particular the sound of her “O” vowel. (Despite its name, Fargo took place mostly in Brainerd, Minn.) However, even in the area, many people speak a more general Alaskan English, the sort one would find in nearby Anchorage. Palin’s frequent dropping of the final G in -ing words and her pronunciation of terrorist with two syllables instead of three are characteristic of general Alaskan English (and Western English) rather than the specific Mat-Su Valley speech.” LINK

also, please forgive those Minnesotans who settled in the Mat-su Valley. They know not what they’ve done.

Remove information to make him look like a hick? Deleting the entire entry would be your best bet against any hick-like comparisons. Especially his name.

Has anyone seen any video of Todd Palin actually speaking? I’m not even looking for a complete sentence, I can’t remember this guying stringing together two words. Isn’t there a you-tube video of him winning some professional lawn-mower race, he would say something when accepting the trophy, wouldn’t he? Seems odd that a guy who sat in on his wife’s official meetings and tried to muscle state officials behind the scenes has never been heard in public.

[re=128074]MC_Bob[/re]: Snow Machine must be a west coast thing… cause I’ve owned several snowmobiles when I was growing up in Maine and we had people from all over the country bringing their snowmobiles in by trailer and I’ve never heard anyone call it a snow machine till i moved to DC and met people from Alaska and Utah…

The only acceptable nickname for a snowmobile is a skidoo, put only because Arctic Cat is too long!

cronyofbushcheney October 9, 2008 at 9:52 pm

This question will make Sarah Palin squirm as much as any asked of her yet. And, she needs to make a clear statement on the issue. I want to know if Sarah Palin speaks in tongues. This is practiced in the churches she attends, like Assemblies of God. Baptists think this is pretty much an abomination. The Pentecostals claim they are inspired by God to speak, and interpret these messages. Mainstream fundamentalists believe there is no addition or subtraction from God’s written word, the Bible. Baptists welcome people like Palin in the polls, but reject them in the pew.

It would be interesting to see Palin’s claim on where she stands. She’ll risk alienating either fellow Pentecostals, or the Baptists.

Ok I read the article at the provided link.

After the car seat thing it says that Todd said it was a false rumor
and that she had been in a pickup on a country road going slowly.

So, was the car seat in the truck or not?

(I want my missed calls back pronto.)
