The Sarah Palin Files, Pt. 47

Josh Marshall, the head honcho at TPM, posts an update on Troopergate, and the desperate measures the McCain campaign is taking the thing down.

The upshot:

Both as mayor and governor, Palin has shown the tell-tale signs of a politician who hires cronies and fires or blackballs critics. This part of Palin's record gets deep in the weeds. So it's not as flashy as the boffo interviews or and irresistible as the straight-up lies she's been caught in. But we need no closer example than the Bush administration to know that people like this are dangerous and corrosive to our public institutions.
