If anyone should be on the hot seat, it's not Monegan, but Palin for her inconsistencies.Was, Mr. Fagan. Was.
The governor has given so many different reasons for firing Monegan I've lost count. From the "we need new direction" and "new energy" to "he wasn't hiring enough cops," to "he wasn't doing enough about alcohol in the bush" to "he lobbied for budget increases" to the latest version, which is a doozy; Monegan displayed "egregious rogue behavior."
The governor also originally said that neither she, Todd nor anyone from her administration pressured Monegan regarding Trooper Wooten. Palin then was forced to admit there was serial contact once the Frank Bailey tape surfaced. But she insisted she was just learning of it. But e-mails have surfaced detailing Palin complaining to Monegan about Wooten.
The governor also originally said an investigation was needed and promised to cooperate. Then she instructed her employees not to talk to the investigator and has herself refused to be interviewed.
Palin can't constantly change her story and expect us to believe her each time she does.
Clearly most Alaskans choose to ignore the facts of the Troopergate scandal. They want Palin to make it to the national stage.
Republicans scold me all the time, "You don't want Obama to win do you? Stop criticizing Palin!"
My question to my conservative friends is simple. Does the truth still matter?
Truth is at the very heart of the conservative movement.
