Who Vetted Her?

It's beginning to sound a little like Arkansas. Check out the details of the Troopergate scandal, and the "soap-opera-style" details of the firing of a police chief, who is now venting to the press. No one looks good in all this, and Palin was caught in a lie she had to concede, and her husband comes off as a bit of a bully, and no one seems to doubt she used her public office to pursue a personal issue. It's pretty trivial stuff, but it's messy. And the legislative inquiry, headed by a Democrat, is scheduled to report on October 31. I'd love to know if McCain knew all this. Or was this as impulsive and as rashly decided as it seems?
