As Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin works to derail a legislative inquiry into her firing of the public safety commissioner, state officials are vowing to finish a report on the controversy by Oct. 10 and to weigh contempt proceedings against Palin’s husband early next year.

Read on.

THESE ARE NOT THE TYPE OF PEOPLE WE WANT IN THE WHITE HOUSE making decisions about our basic human rights, our social security, homeland security, health. They'll take advantage of us. DO NOT VOTE MCCAIN/Palin. Pleeease. If you already donated money to the republican campaign just forget about it and move on. We'll try again in 4 years and if we don't like Obama then we'll choose someone else.

It's time to write about more important matters. This "Troopergate" distraction is just that -- a distraction.

How about looking into the MAJOR FLAWS in the draft of the bailout act that Congress will be focusing on this week?

From the current draft of the PLAN to "save the economy" -- The three key provisions: (1) The Treasury Secretary is authorized to buy up to $700 billion of any mortgage-related assets (so he can just transfer that amount to any corporations in exchange for their worthless or severely crippled "assets") [Sec. 6]; (2) The ceiling on the national debt is raised to $11.3 trillion to accommodate this scheme [Sec. 10]; and (3) "Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency" [Sec. 8].

Put another way, this authorizes Paulson to transfer $700 billion of taxpayer money to private industry at his sole discretion, and nobody has the right or ability to review or challenge any decision he makes.

If Obama, as a Constitutional law "professor," doesn't take a leadership role in striking that clause from the act, he doesn't deserve to sit in the Oval Office. Same goes for McCain. However, Obama is the one who's touted as the messenger of hope, change and all things good -- so he'd better act like a LEADER on this legislation.
