At rally in Jefferson City, Missouri, today, Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin drew 18,000 people.
Eighteen thousand for a vice-presidential nominee. Gateway Pundit has more pictures.
Meanwhile, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Biden held a rally earlier in the day in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. His turnout?
Poor Joe. He’s a jackass, but I can’t help but feel a little sorry for him.
Oh, and back to Governor Palin, the Alaska State Personnel Board exonerated her of all charges in the so-called Troopergate "scandal," and criticized the investigator hired by the legislature for misapplying the law:
Alaska’s Personnel Board concluded Monday that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin did not violate ethics law by trying to get her ex-brother-in-law fired from the state police, contradicting an earlier investigation’s findings.
"There is no probable cause to believe that the governor, or any other state official, violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with these matters," Timothy Petumenos, the Anchorage lawyer hired to conduct the probe, wrote in his final report.
It’s too late to do any good for election day with those who assumed she must have done something wrong, but it’s still nice to see her vindicated.
