    I read something today that said there was a similar situation in the past where a "deal" was made. The Governor stepped down, the Lt. Governor took office as Governor and appointed the outgoing Governor as Senator.

    Juli, could it happen that way?

    If it is possible, a few years in Washington would probably be quite educational, assuming that she did not get corrupted like the rest of the beltway crowd.

    Kevin has a point.

    Wasn't it Fox that first reported the leakage on Lady Sarah? If they were really in the bag for the Republicans they would have buried it like the LA Times did with the Obama Tape.

    I don't believe Palin would be so stupid as to step down as gov, just so that she could be a Senator....

    but hey, you never know!

    Are you saying that a disguised anonymous source is credible? If that is the case, then I could register on this forum under an assumed name and start a thread saying anything I want about you and everybody should believe me just because it appears on this forum.

    Fox is to conservatives what MSNBC is to liberals.

    In other words, I rate both networks equal in objectivity.

    I would not try and rate the other networks. I watch a little CNN, but I primarily watch FOX, MSNBC, and CSPAN.

    Is there a media bias? The answer is clearly yes! The press spent $9.6 million following Obama on the campaign and $4.4 million following the McCain campaign. In other words, the media spent more than twice as much following Obama. The worst offender was CBS, which spent $1.2 million traveling with Obama but only $222,000 traveling with the McCain. In other words, CBS spent almost 6 times as much following Obama as they spent following McCain. Even FOX News spent more on the Obama campaign, $496,000, than on the McCain campaign, $313,000. Clearly, the media was more interested in traveling on the Obama Express than on the Straight Talk Express. So much for objectivity!

    I you do a little objective research you will note that even FOX News leans a little to the left.
