Daily KO's Knock One Out

This is a great insider story on Palin. Too bad she isn't taking questions from the media. The third star isn't recognized outside the state - EXCEPT FOR RETIREMENT PAY!!

A Sneak Peek at Palin as C-in-C.

Honoring military service by trading promotions for political favors, eh?


The Republican way.

VoteVets' Brandon Friedman has the story:

Sunday 31 August 2008: Major General Craig Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard, tells the AP that:

he and Palin play no role in national defense activities, even when they involve the Alaska National Guard. The entire operation is under federal control, and the governor is not briefed on situations.


The quote is used against Palin throughout the media for several days.
Then Brandon points out that three days later, General Campbell says it again, in the Boston Globe:

[T]he Alaskan governor is not in the site's chain of command and has no authority over its operations, according to Maj. Gen. Craig E. Campbell, the adjutant general of the Alaska National Guard who commands the roughly 3,800 state militia members.


But then...

Friday 5 September 2008: Only two days later, Campbell's story has completely fip-flopped. Now he's suddenly praising Palin, appearing on Fox News to gush about what a superb commander-in-chief she is:

"I'll tell you, in the last few days, I've been watching the press, and I've not been very pleased with what I've been seeing about the chastising of the National Guard by having it diminished by the insinuation that a commander-in-chief of the National Guard doesn't really control the military. The National Guard has 500,000 people in it around this great country, serving in states and overseas. National Guards are state military forces run by governors, and Sarah Palin does it great."


Result? Cha-ching!

Monday 8 September: After the weekend--and after his complimentary remarks--Major General Campbell is promoted within the Alaska National Guard to the rank of Lieutenant General. The promotion is not recognized outside the state of Alaska, but he is promoted with his third star, nonetheless.
Sign on the dotted line and get a promotion, General. Hell, you had no choice. You know she'd fire you if you didn't.

(Note: Brandon's up with this news as a top recommended diary right here at Daily Kos now, too.)

Off topic comment, but I think the CCP Blog is doing itself a great disservice by not allowing Phil (KC Cicero) to have his own column.

I disagree with about half of what he says, but he is a true Democrat.

I couldn't agree more.

I once suggested to Sweeney at INGRAMS that he let me have one -- that it would boost his readership. I fear he felt his CEO readership's blood pressure couldn't take it.

As for this "general"? He's no fool. Remember what happen to the Generals who told W he needed twice as many men for occupation as for invasion?

While most people do not like them because of the weaker stat types, in this game you do not have to work about that with rohan crone. The other thing that backs this up is their ability to cast many rohan online crone and stun spells. When put rohan gold to the test they can also use powerful magical attacks to fend for themselves. Templar Quite the aggressor, they are more of the fighting type healers who only use their rohan online gold to magic on themselves. By using rohan money to buy crossbows they attack slower but with their powerful attacking skills it dose not matter much.
