Maybelline, Revlon or Loreal... the choices are endless!


I have heard that the "Lower 48" does not understand Alaska and its culture at all. Well, with all due respect I think that some of the issues below do deserve at the very least a few raised eyebrows.

For those of the other Lower 48 frenzied, starry eyed "we got ourselves a really hottie" supporters that feel we don't know about Sarah Palin because we don't live there and we are just being "mean", take a gander at Anchorage Daily New's comments to the editor regarding our "heartbeat away" VP candidate.

Now get out of the liptick jungle and on to some thoughts:

  1. She offered a bounty of $150 for each right front leg of freshly killed wolves

  2. She is presently under investigation in Alaska for abuse of power

  3. She strongly supports drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

  4. She promotes aerial hunting of wolves and bears even though Alaskans voted twice to ban the practice (VIDEO)

  5. She supports the Alaskan Independence Party which seeks independence from the United States (VIDEO)

  6. She is a champion for big oil and her campaign slogan has become "Drill, baby, drill!"

  7. She believes creationism should be taught in public schools

  8. She believes man-made global warming is a farce

  9. She is opposed to listing the polar bear as an endangered species because it might limit oil exploitation

  10. While mayor of Wasilla she tried to fire the city librarian because the librarian refused to censor books

  11. She used $400,000 of state money to fund a propaganda campaign in support of aerial hunting

  12. As mayor of Wasilla, she made rape victims pay for their own forensic evidence kits

  13. She obtained her first passport just last year (2007)

  14. She touts her "experience" as Mayor of a city no larger than some of the minor Chicago suburbs as qualifying for VP even though Wasilla is known as the Meth Capital of Alaska . Seems her own backyard needs a bit of cleaning up!

And on to another interesting tidbit, with friends like these how can Sarah go wrong! Can we say Billy Carter anyone?

You can't even drive in this town without risking running over an enthusiastic Palin supporter, but, that might not be so bad.....

What's the difference between Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney? Lipstick....

Yes, you've listed some serious controversies, but she can see Russia from her house! This certainly makes her qualified...doh.

Yes We Can!

She is one step away from twirling her hair....

#15 - She appointed a high school classmate, a former real estate agent, Director of the Alaska Division of Agriculture. The friend citied her childhood love of cows as a qualification for running the agency.

and
#16 - When she had to cut her 2007 budget she ignored Alaskan Legislatures and Mayors. She instead huddled with her Budget Director and husband Todd to veto millions of $$$ of legislative projects.
#17 - Palin had her assistant call a Wasilla blogger when she was not happy with what she was writting and tell her to "Stop blogging. Stop blogging right now".

#15 - #17 all courtsey of NY Times. (The newspaper Conservatives love to hate.)

Let's go back to your comments on McCain while on the View. I believe you alleged that he misused the truth. If you actually, truly, believe this list you have created for Sarah Palin, you might want to rethink the title conservalib. I am so curious why women who have promoted women in politics are so suddenly thrown for a loop by the Alaskan governor. I guess if you lean left she's the anti-christ, but the strange thing is that she has a better resume than Obama. So beat her up, kick her, make fun of her,but I think you're wasting your time. She can take it.

Conserva Lib will stay. And no rethinking is needed. I am not party affiliated, I am liberal in some aspects and conservative in others.

Women have promoted women in politics because they believe in that specific woman. To pick an unknown uber conservative just because you think you will have the flock of Hillary-ites pounding on your electoral door is just insulting to intelligent women who look at the issues not just the candidate. I was leaning towards McCain seriously, but after his pick he lost me.

And back to the later posting, I did not write it - it was open for discussion.
