    That was a specific response to your, until proven otherwise, wild ascertions as to what Palin's qualifications are for bing reelected to the governorship NEXT YEAR.

    Broad ascertions is what they were and still are.
    Until you clarify them with facts.

    Until then please stop trolling this thread unless you have something of substance to add.

    thanks.
    So still no particular exception with what I said and just a continued attempt to be obtuse and trollish. Thanks for clearing that up.

    What the hell are you talking about Jall? Please reread the thread and you will see that I did take exception with everything that you claimed and asked you to show one single shred of proof that any of it is true..you can't.

    FAILED.

    Next.

    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.

    And I have repeatedly asked you to specify which issue you would like to tackle first.

    I'm not sure why you haven't looked these things up yourself if you are so vested in the Alaska gubernatorial race.
    1. What in your opinion makes her state supreme court appointments a quality to look for in reguards to being reelected?

    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?

    I will assume your list was prioritized so this is the specific one you want to discuss, for now.

    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.

    Yes I did read up on this and yes she did appoint this person going against the anti abortion crowd after she ran a campaign that was stauchly pro-choice.
    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.

    The principal achievement of Sarah Palin's term as Alaska's governor, a natural-gas pipeline project backed by $500 million in state tax money, might never be built unless Canadian authorities can strike a deal with some of the country's angry Indian tribes. Approximately half of the proposed pipeline would run through Canada; native tribes who live along its route complain they haven't been consulted about it and are threatening to sue unless they are compensated. Representatives of the canadian tribes, known as First Nations, say Palin and other pipeline proponents are treating them with disrespect. The tribes' lawyers warn that the courts are on their side and say the Indians have the power to delay the pipeline for years—or even kill it entirely by filing endless lawsuits.
    Why don't you use some up to date information. The article you quote is almost a year old. And... Newsweek is one of the most liberal publications out there. They love to take pot shots at Republicans.

    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?

    I doubt she did it for political reasons. If anything, she shot herself in the foot politically by going against that "family values" group who contributed to her campaign. Also, if you look at her first pick which happened before she was ever tapped for VP, he wasn't all that conservative either and she had a longer list to choose from on that one that included one of the most conservative superior court judges in Alaska.

    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?
