      Did I leave out the BREAKING?

      Seriously. Hiring a guy she knew had a sexual harrassment issue in his past, to run the whole police department, just because of his religious views - what part of this is not dynamite? Too complicated?

      Other fun fact: word leaked that she was going to hire him. The morning before the official announcement, the woman who'd been harrassed by "where's my hug" Kopp wrote an email to Palin explaining the story (including the official reprimand) and saying "please don't hire him". And Palin still hired the guy.

        It's just the Anchorage Daily News. And it's background. Bloggers, please run with this.

          people do know about this appointment and the harassment charges and payoffs if they are real Palinoligists and many are just not  going to open another Palin diary because of a headline.

            the "fundie" connection. But it gives the REASON she would hire a sexual harrasser. It turns what was just a damning fact into a damning story. Which is all the difference, in my book.

            But I see your point.

            "Woman hired sexual harrasser" and they'll block it out, does not compute.

            "Fundie hired sexual harrasser to score political points with her fundie base", now that has legs.
