It would be nice not electing some ivy league lawyer for a change, but this seems like we went from lowering the bar, to dropping it completely.
The last thing the GOP needs right now is the one person that proved capable of completely keeping the idiocy glare off of Biden. That's quite an accomplishment in it's own right I suppose.
2. How has any of her policies increased the public safety in Alaska. Is it because there hasn't been any attacks in Alaska since 9-11?
3. What if any infrastructure projects has she played any part in beginning during her reign?
4. How many oil companies have been forced to drill because of Palin's policies? How many have been forced to give up their leases because of Palin's policies?
5. How exactly has she expanded on Native incest and rape prevention?
6. What education measures?
Try those for starters.
How, if they exist, are they qualities that people should look for when choosing a future Gov. for the state of Alaska next year?

Three specific points on this topic stand out to me, from her recent appointment of Morgen Christen:
First, she didn't buck the judicial council like Frank Murkowski had with lesser appointments. She didn't delay the appointment by rejecting all nominees and she chose to work within the Constitution. If anything, she snubbed the interest group that lobbied hardest to get their way about the appointment.
Second, she thoroughly vetted her pick before sending her on to confirmation. She showed a commitment to making an informed and independent decision.
And finally, she made her decision, not based on her personal opinions about abortion, but on who would best fill the position. Christen used to serve on the board of planned parenthood. That shows me she isn't guided by her personal views, but by the views of the Alaska state constitution.
Did she do this for political reasons?
My list was not prioritized it as just listed in the order of issues that you laid out in your declaration of her acheivments.
Current news on the pipeline: ExxonMobile and TransCanada just announced a deal to build the pipeline. When built, 4.5 BILLION cu. ft. of gas will flow through it.
What's wrong? Don't you think this country should work toward energy independence???
Or are you more interested in drumming up trivial garbage on the governor?
If anything, her picks for ASC have been independent or even liberal. That shows me she has a pretty strong independent streak, herself.
So which one do you want to tackle next?
