Palin to inquiry.

Something to hide?

Want the truth to come out...

Get on the stand, raise your hand

I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

defend herself. The founding fathers would understand her sentiments completely. They were VERY familiar with stacked courts.

It's very telling that you did not complain about that when Bill & Hillary used this approach to the hilt, and they were dealing with a fair investigator.

Oh yes. She's not dumb enough to offer herself up to the mercies of a Democrat witch hunt. So sad for the left.

...that regarding the Clintons you called it "obstruction of justice" and this time around you're calling it "using the legal process?"

By "fair investigator" I assume you're referring to Ken Starr. ROFL!!

I find it interesting that an office John Nance Garner (VP under Roosevelt) once described as "not worth a bucket of warm p***." has become so important to some people not even in the U.S.that they go on-and-on about Palin's being nominated for that office.
BTW, a lot of history books changed that last word to "spit".

The China reference makes no sense. Who wants to restrict what you say and read? I said that I found the sudden preoccupation with the office by some to be worthy of note. Back when Gore held the office, I once heard somebody in D.C. joke, "Well, somebody's got to attend the funerals.". Comments about that office turned from jokes to constant attacks, and even by people living in other countries, and I commented on it. It seems to have put a bee in your bonnet.

by grimgraphix / September 16, 2008 6:39 AM PDT
In reply to: Who wants...

... is solely due to the efforts of **** Cheney. I forget who it was, that I saw talking about him recently, but I recall the person mentioning that Dan Quale went to see Cheney when he was elected to help ease him into the office. Quale started out giving a review of the "traditional" duties of the VP office. Cheney was said to have politely interrupted Quale and told the former VP that he had an understanding with the new president and his duties would be different.

My personal opinion is that Cheney assumed as much personal influence in his office as some presidents have held during their whole tenure.

Sorry, Josh, but I am afraid that's a lie. I wasn't surprised when Dan tried the Pegler connection smear, but for you to do it too is something of a surprise. Or maybe the lefty websites have just sucked you in.

A speechwriter of hers used a quote from Pegler ptraising small town citizens. That is the extent of it.

How shameful. The Obama gang can't make their case so they attack Palin. Who are they running against?

Yes, he stole at least one speech that we know of from a cartoon. That is indisputable.

And he stole parts of one from Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. Supposedly, he got permission for that. Before or after he made te speech is unclear.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
