Late breaking news that few will hear about

While I don't like to question the timing of every last thing that happens, I find it interesting that Sarah Palin's exoneration in the so-called "Troopergate" affair didn't become public until too late in the election for any voters to have time to process it.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A report has cleared Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin of ethics violations in the firing of her public safety commissioner.

Released Monday, the report says there is no probable cause to believe Palin or any other state official violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with the firing. The report was prepared by Timothy Petumenos, an independent counsel for the Alaska Personnel Board.

A separate legislative investigation recently concluded that Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, abused her office by allowing her husband and staffers to pressure the public safety commissioner to fire a state trooper who went through a nasty divorce from Palin's sister.

Palin says the firing had nothing to do with the trooper.

All the voters heard about was the highly political legislative investigation report, of course.

Typical politics.

Yes, it's a little late breaking.

Just have a great day, no matter what ... it's democracy's feast.
