“A leaked manuscript by one of Sarah Palin’s closest aides from her time as governor charges that Palin broke state election law in her 2006 gubernatorial campaign and was consumed by petty grievances up until she resigned.” Nah, that doesn’t sound like her. Must be a governor of another unpopulated northern meth-and-jerky wasteland they’re thinking of. On the other hand, someone with a South African e-mail address is sending sexy tidbits to the entire Internet. Anyway, here is the good quote holding everything together, dating to right before her resignation as governor: “I hate this damn job.” If she didn’t like that job, she must be very happy she will never be president!
The manuscript is titled, “In Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years.” Bailey is a former Alaska Airlines supervisor who joined Palin’s campaign team at the beginning of her successful run for governor in 2006. He writes in the manuscript how he was charmed and inspired by Palin.
See, it makes sense that Palin would hire something called an “Alaska Airlines supervisor” to run the executive branch of the state government, but it’s hard to believe somebody could be “charmed and inspired by Palin.” Can we really believe this leak?
“Sarah Palin had God’s blessing and people’s love and faith,” he wrote.
Oh come on.
Besides this whole “Mandate of Heaven” thing, this guy alleges that Palin violated election law by using the soft-money RGA to fund her campaign commercials and that she appointed a dude to the Alaska Supreme Court pretty much because he really stuck it to her ex-brother-in-law in a custody hearing. When she one day becomes not-president, will she not-appoint a man to the Supreme Court solely because he waived one of Piper’s DUIs? Probably. [Anchorage Daily News]
