That fact that she did DID say it is something I commented on earlier.
Now her follow-up statement that she didn't want to "split hairs" about whether Begich should resign begins to make a little more sense... if you speak Palinese.
She didn't actually want Begich to resign, doncha know. She just wanted him to "step aside" so we could have a do-over for Ted, you betcha.
The actual status of a "Stepped Aside" U.S. Senator is a concept that's alien to me. Does he still get to vote? Does he still have franking privileges? Do we still call him "Senator?"
So many questions (like whether or not this woman has ever cracked open a set of Alaska Statutes in her life).
I'm thinking, Governor Palin... let's see... using your logic:
If Ted's conviction had been thrown out prior to the election, perhaps Begich would not have won...
... and if Alaskans realized you were both stupid and insane prior to the last Gubernatorial race, perhaps you would not have won!
I like it!
Governor Palin, I am officially calling on you to you "step aside," so that Tony Knowles and Andrew Halcro can have a "do-over."
