This just in: The Alaska Senate Democrats have refused to vote on any of the three names submitted by Palin. A legal opinion issued this morning said it is illegal for Palin to submit more than one name for confirmation.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Hollis French, an Anchorage Democrat, said, “There is nothing for us to vote on, there is no appointment. The governor has taken an unusual course which is outside the law and leaves us no choice but to ignore what she’s done.” Ahh, Dems with a SPINE!
Palin’s appointed Attorney General, Wayne Anthony Ross, said, “It seems to me the most important thing that can be done by the Senate is not argue with legal or illegal but to appoint somebody to represent Juneau…”
REALLY…SO JUST ACT – DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT BEING LEGAL OR NOT??? This guy wants to be the top legal advisor in our state? Tomorrow, the Alaska legislature will vote on W.A.R.’s confirmation.
He failed two important tests today. First, he demonstrated he is not capable of being objective or independent when it comes to Palin’s actions. Second, he thinks action is more important than legality.
Pssst, that’s the job of Attorney General…determining the LEGALITY of ACTIONS, not just “Get ‘er Done!”
VOTE NO ON WAR!
