ABC reports that the trip Palin claims was the final straw that led to her firing Walt Monegan, one he supposedly took against her orders, was actually authorized by her chief of staff.

So either Palin is incompetent (didn’t let her Chief of Staff know she didn’t want Monegan going to DC) or she’s a liar.

You choose.

Oh, and what was the trip for? To get funds for an anti-rape program. Given Palin’s record on making rape victims pay for tests to catch their rapists, I’m going with incompetent, because I’m sure Palin really didn’t want an anti-rape program.
