Or them Justice League of America folks could look at 'em too, doggone it. ABCNews (07.07.09), via Eschaton:
"Palin said there is a difference between the White House and what she has experienced in Alaska. If she were in the White House, she said, the 'department of law' would protect her from baseless ethical allegations.

'I think on a national level, your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out,' she said.

Palin: 'Politically Speaking, If I Die, So Be It'

"There is no 'Department of Law' at the White House."

There is an Alaskan Department of Law. Isn't it possible that this woman was just trying to draw a parallel and didn't know the name of the equivalent at the Federal level? I understand it's fun to hate this lady every time she gaffes, but maybe the American public is losing site of what politicians are supposed to be doing for us. They are supposed to represent and serve us. Not rule over us as patriarchs/matriarchs. I could care less if you agree or disagree with her politics, or if you would vote for her or not. But shouldn't we step back and ask ourselves what it means to be a public servant vs. career politician? It's clear she didn't groom herself for a career in politics. Americans should be wary of anyone who does. And career politicians gaffe just as much.

I didn't vote for her...I just think these attacks seem to reflect a desire to be led by politicians instead of having them representing the public's interests.

As in the Department of Justice, perhaps?

Oh and I don't hate her. I just think she is an uninquisitive, mean, venal and vindictive person.

Not to mention, she isn't particularly bright.

And for that matter, going from Mayor to Governor to a candidate for Vice-President isn't exactly the path one would expect from someone disinterested in a career in politics.
