Hold on, a politician would be self serving? Sarah Palin, the champion of small town American values and moral integrity would put a law in place to subsidize her television programming?
Perhaps she did put this law in place, ran the tables in the 2008 election, then was approached only later for a TV production that could take advantage of the subsidy. I suspect this is the case, but it is closer to the hog farms then the arboreal sanctums of executive power.
Yes, I am sure there are democrats who do far worse things with their executive pen strokes. I also am aware of the varied and vapid underhand dealings done by other Republicans. This is merely a preemptive strike at the claims of Palin's marvelous moral conservatism we are sure to hear in the days to come.
