Sarah Palin — Tinpot Petty Dictator

Late on a Friday, the news breaks that Sarah Palin did indeed abuse her power as Governor of Alaska. Late Friday so that the fewest possible people will actually get the news.
"Sarah Palin unlawfully abused her power as governor by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper, the chief investigator of an Alaska legislative panel concluded Friday. The politically charged inquiry imperiled her reputation as a reformer on John McCain's Republican ticket.

Investigator Stephen Branchflower, in a report by a bipartisan panel that investigated the matter, found Palin in violation of a state ethics law that prohibits public officials from using their office for personal gain."
