The Devil’s In The Details

Governor Sarah Palin and her husband Todd released their 2006 and 2007 tax returns. Turns out the “Hockey Mom” and “Joe Six-Pack” are doing really well. Thanks to some significant deductions they enjoyed a very low tax rate ranging from 10% to 15%. Here’s one summary and analysis.

G. Gordon Liddy is a supporter of Senator John McCain. And Senator John McCain speaks very highly of G. Gordon Liddy. Yes, that G. Gordon Liddy of Watergate infamy; the convicted felon who served just one quarter of his twenty year sentence for burglary and wiretapping. Just this past November 2007, John McCain said of G. Gordon Liddy: “I'm proud of you, I'm proud of your family. It's always a pleasure for me to come on your program, Gordon, and congratulations on your continued success and adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great.” Here’s a detailed summary of their relationship.

I have to admit the tax revelations don't bother me nearly as much as reading that McCain is a "fan" of G. Gordon Liddy...What is he thinking? He admires him??

I'm totally gobsmacked

Hi Gail -
Ditto on gobsmacked!
Years ago I used to think John McCain was an O.K. guy.
But now I think that he wants this last chance at the presidency so badly that he's willing to say and do anything to please the "base" and the rest of the Big Republican Machine.
