Yesterday, Ted Stevens was found guilty of seven felony charges. Which means he can still run for the Senate–even though he can’t vote for himself.
Meanwhile, remember Troopergate? Remember the fake investigation Sarah Palin started to confuse people about the real one? The real one ended a few weeks ago, finding she abused her power and violated the law. The fake one is wrapping up soon, it seems, and somewhere along the way, the investigation became legit. Her investigator is using all the findings of the original investigator and also interviewed the Palins themselves on the record.
I will laugh hysterically when it finds her guilty, too. Thing is, this one is more likely to have direct consequences: impeachment, possible jail time.
Here’s betting she perjured herself.
In any case, we have a few possibilities for 2012. When the Republican party implodes after this election, we’ll see a war between the moderate, old-style conservatives and the neocons: Powell vs. Palin. If Palin is impeached, the moderates will win; if not, she’ll be their nominee in 2012. If she runs in 2012, we’ll know the Mayans were right.
We have two futures: one where Palin runs for the Presidency and one where she disappears into the woodwork as a historical footnote.
Rest assured that you have little to fear: she’s obviously guilty.
