Alaska State Senate president, Lyda Green, a longtime foe of Palin's, is not going gently into the Rovian night:

Calling herself a "raging Republican," Green says, she is "absolutely disgusted, embarrassed, and ashamed" by the McCain-Palin campaign's intervention in the Troopergate probe. Green is alarmed by the McCain squad's use of hardball tactics and "the length to which they're going to impede and delay" the investigation.

The local press conferences held by McCain-Palin aides, she adds, "are vile. They're attacking nice people, saying things that are not true. Walt Monegan has been respected in all circles. To see him used as a scapegoat is very disheartening."

Saying things that aren't true? Palin? You don't say.
