McCain to End Sarah Palin's Abuses of Power? Don't Get Your Hopes Up

A story on Talking Points Memo's Election Central caught my eye and made me chuckle (even if the subject matter is so serious that we shouldn't be laughing at it). Apparently in a speech at a political rally today, Gov. Palin said:
See, as a senator, John has confronted the corrupt ways of Washington and the wasteful spending and the abuses of power. As president, he's gonna end those once and for all.
That's a terrific sentiment and, if he should somehow be elected, I would love to see Sen. McCain end abuses of power. Of course, it is a bit odd for Gov. Palin to be talking about abuses of power. Here is the first paragraph of the Findings portion of the Branchflower report on Troopergate issued on Friday:
For the reasons explained in section IV of this report, I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act.
Does Gov. Palin really want to be talking about abuses of power? Talk about living in a glass house...
