Palin Still Bad-Mouthing Trooper

In his recent New Yorker story, Philip Gourevitch noted that even as Sarah Palin was arguing to him that she had fired Walt Monegan for other reasons, “she seemed to be saying something else–that her vendetta against Wooten was wholly justified.”

And watching Palin’s recent interview with Sean Hannity, we got the same impression.

Palin told Hannity: “This trooper tasered my nephew…that was…it’s all on the record. It’s all there. His threats against the first family, the threat against my dad. All that is in the record. And if the opposition researchers chooses to forget that side of the story, they’re not doing their job.”

Sounds like she still feels she had a legitimate beef.
