Mitt Romney can’t go after Obama on Crony Capitalism, Sarah Palin can, A Limerick.

The croniest capitalism

Obama’s is sort of fascism.

But Romney can’t say

He is out of the fray.

So Run, Sarah Run, for we can’t have a schism.

Sarah Palin: Criminal penalty if vote traded for campaign contribution. [The Alaska Senate watered down the 2007 ethics bill] The Senate’s action was politics-as-usual. We were determined to keep the pressure on. That pressure paid off when legislators approved an omnibus ethics bill. It included my administration’s ethics proposal, as well as the House’s muscular amendment that imposed criminal penalties on lawmakers who traded votes for campaign contributions. Plus, any legislator convicted of a felony would forfeit his or her state pension. We were pleased that no one could claim pride of authorship on this. Finally the Capitol had pulled together and passed a strong bill. A Democrat lawmaker noted: “This is one of the best pieces of work I’ve seen come out of the legislature because it came out as a policy document and not a political document.” It was music to my ears: POLICY, not politics. From Going Rogue, by Sarah Palin, p.156
