On "Ethics"

Everybody's favorite governor seems to be clean.  At least according to her:

"If you read the report, you will see that there was nothing unlawful or unethical about replacing a cabinet member," the GOP veep nominee said as she boarded her campaign bus in Pittsburgh. "You got to read the report."

Do I got to?  Do I really?  Well okay.  But if I got to, so do you.  Here is the full report. It's not super fun to read, but you got to do what you got to do.

Turns out the governor may have a different understanding of "ethical" behavior than most other people.  For instance, it is apparently ethical to use a personal grudge as justification for firing a subordinate.  This should come as no surprise to most of us who work in public education, as it is a common practice in central administration.  Though it should be pointed out that even they have the common sense to know that it is something that should be covered up with a couple of bad observations.

So, that's where we stand.  The GOP veep candidate has a lower ethical standard than a public school superintendant.
