"Not illegal, not unethical, and not a scandal"

Republicans can rest easy if all of the reporters combing the frozen tundra in Alaska can come up with nothing more interesting than this morning's Washington Post hit piece on Sarah Palin's use of per diem's while governor of Alaska. David Bernstein eviscerates the report:

[W]hat the story ultimately reveals is that Palin (a) billed the state for most expenses allowed by law, including per diem when she stayed in her own home (her "duty station" was the state capitol of Juneau) in Wasilla; (b) didn't bill the state for other expenses, when she could have done so lawfully, such as per diems for her children; and (c) spent a lot less money on expenses than did her predecessor, especially on travel and by ridding herself of the state's personal chef.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone seen any reporters poking around Delaware? I didn't think so.
