John McCain called for convicted Alaska US Senator Ted Stevens to resign.
"It is clear that Senator Stevens has broken his trust with the people and that he should now step down," McCain said. "I hope that my colleagues in the Senate will be spurred by these events to redouble their efforts to end this kind of corruption once and for all."
Not Palin - Sarah Palin called for Stevens to "do the right thing" without defining exactly what that is:
In her statement, Palin asked Alaskans to "join me in respecting the workings of our judicial system. I'm confident Senator Stevens will do what is right for the people of Alaska."
She wouldn't tell reporters whether she planned to vote for Stevens.
Sarah Palin says she expects Stvens to "do the right thing" which just as easily could be interpreted as "stay and fight!"
Do you think Sarah Palin is afraid to piss him off because of what fellow Alaskan Stevens knows? You think Sarah Palin is afraid Stevens will spill the beans and tell the press about all of those earmarks Palin requested though his office - blowing huge holes in her "Mavericky" image?
But even if that wasn't the case - why on earth would Palin fall short of calling for Stevens resignation?
Apparently she's for "cleaning up Washington" unless its one of her oil-loving pals whose tit is in a wringer?
And Palin could not bring herself to say she was or wasn't going to vote for Stevens' re-election after this conviction.
What a gutless Diva.
