Talk about reaching!

The Detroit News somehow -- incredibly -- makes a comparison between Sarah Palin and disgraced [Democrat] Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick:

The [Palin "troopergate"] case has vague echoes of one more familiar to Michigan voters: that of Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. In both cases, public officials are accused of interfering with law enforcement agencies for personal reasons -- the text-message scandal involving Kilpatrick emerged as part of a lawsuit brought by two Detroit officers who sued the city, alleging Kilpatrick had them fired because they alerted other officials to Kilpatrick's wrongdoing.

But ethics experts and even Alaska Democrats argued that Palin's situation, at least so far, is less serious than Kilpatrick's.

"It's hard to imagine what could be as bad as what Kilpatrick has done," said Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

Gee, really?

The article is titled "Scandals different for Palin, Kilpatrick: Though both accused of power abuse, experts agree mayor's case worse." Wow. What journalism!

Stay tuned for this hard-hitting article: "Assassinations different for Wilkes Booth, Hinckley: Though both shot at presidents, experts agree angry Confederate's case worse."
