Latest video on the Troopergate probe from local Anchorage TV Channel 2 claiming that McCain’s so-called “Truth Squad” is not exactly telling the truth. The allegations surround the investigation by state lawmakers into whether vice-presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin abused her power by allegedly trying to get her brother-in-law fired.

Palin tried to get a guy to fire her brother in law, who was going through a divorce with Palin's sister.
When the guy would not do it, she fired him.
She wanted to ban books and asked a librarian how to do that.
When the librarian objected, Palin tried to fire her.
That's three people who annoyed her, under threats or the reality of being fired.

Then, McCain, to fix our financial mess, offers firing the head of the SEC.
He also wanted to fire the head of the Federal Election Board, for some reason.

These people do not have the capacity to comprehend complex problems and are vengeful, so the solution they give is to fire people.

With countries, the solution is also obliteration.

They would have been comfortable in the old Soviet system, I think.
