Well, so much for the troopergrate crap from the left on Governor Palin. Their entire premise lies on the fact Todd Palin (the First Gentleman of Alaska) had numerous contacts with the now firedÂ Public Safety Commissioner, Walt Monegan. Â A blogger at Flopping Aces has discovered those contacts were ordered by the Governor’s security detail because the deranged ex-brother-in-law (in trouble for tasering his own son) was a threat.
â€œWhen made aware of the security concerns regarding a state trooper, I instructed the First Gentleman to contact the commissioner of Public Safety. It is standard protocol to ask every governor about any threats they perceive or have realized.Â â€œI will not hesitate to set the record straight in answering these false allegations by former Commissioner Monegan.â€Â (emphasis added)
The Governor’s brother-in-law was a nutcase who drank on the job as a policeman, tasered his son and was possibly threatening his ex-wife’s family because of the divorce. Conflating this example of classic male stalking of ex-wives and girlfriends into some kind of smear on Palin is going to backfire.
Now we now see why the Baracuda (Palin) has devoured so many of her enemies – they implode over their own stupidity and biases.
