Gee, ya think this Troopergate non-scandal has anything to do with Barack Obama Chicago-style politics?
The communist McClatchy newspaper Anchorage Daily News was a little too honest in their report on the so-called “Troopergate protest” this weekend:
A protest slamming Gov. Sarah Palin’s handling of the state’s so-called Troopergate investigation — and calling for the attorney general to lose his job — drew more than 1,000 people to the Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage on Saturday.
Protesters chanted “recall Palin!” as organizers told the crowd to push state legislators to keep after their investigation into the governor’s firing of her top cop.
An investigator hired by the lawmakers is scheduled to present his report on Oct. 10.
“This report needs to be released. Not just for us … it needs to be released for all those people in the Lower 48 who are going to make a decision on Nov. 4,” Democratic blogger Linda Kellen Biegel told hundreds of protesters gathered on the Park Strip grass.
The McCain-Palin campaign dismissed the rally as nothing more than a partisan strike from Barack Obama loyalists.
…Between speeches, Anchorage singer-songwriter Libby Roderick led the crowd in a chorus of “We’re gonna keep on moving forward” and “Stand tall for Obama.” Obama volunteers signed up supporters under a nearby tent.
“Clearly this was an Obama rally and nothing else,” Palin campaign spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton said in an e-mailed statement. “The rally proves the point of partisanship which the Governor has been trying to remove from the investigation in an effort to get a fair and just result.”

As you can tell, this wasn’t about holding Palin accountable.
It was about helping Barack Obama.
