    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?
    That's true and it's false. Yes, the deal has been made and everyone is ready to move on it except the government of Canada. Alaska has its natives under control and actually favorable to the deal. Canada is still having issues with its natives being their typical whiney bitches about anything the white man wants to do. I think its time to disband reservations everywhere (alaska doesn't have reservations) and force assimilation into modern society.

    I see no value in fostering primitive cultural practices for the benefit of a society that would have gone the way of the dodo were it not for the good graces of their conquerers. We ended segregation in this country during the civil rights era. It's time to get the natives on board.

    Jall you talk about Natives as if they are cattle or something. Does Palin talk to them in this fashion also? Perhaps that why her pipeline is dead in the water.

    Lets move on the #2 on the list.

    2. How has any of her policies increased the public safety in Alaska and why should this be taken into voters account when considering her for reelection next year?

    No, I think they are people just like anyone else. I also think that their time of handouts is over and that they need to get with the program. There cannot be a separate nation within this nation.

    If they are unwilling to step into the role of a proper American, then sure, we can let them live on their little reservations with their seperate laws and such but we have no need to acknowledge their vote or give them any share of the taxes collected in this country. If their casinos can sustain them, by all means let them. But progress and industry should never be held up over some tribal claim to land.

    As to your second point of contention...

    Palin made it one of her key campaign points to expand public safety presence through the expanding the LEO budget by some 20%, she toughened enforcement of penalties against police officers who commit crimes while on duty (a serious problem in the state for a while), and she signed into law a range of bills that implemented DNA collection from felons, electronic monitoring of violent gang offenders (believe it or not, a serious issue in Anchorage).

    Most notable, her pet bill, HB 265, implemented law that requires convicted sex offenders to stay current with their sex offender registration in order to maintain eligibility for the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend.

    A list of her all her public safety expansion through 2009 can be found here.

    Did anyone notice this wording "We need those energy sources flowing through North America. That's what my focus is." Is the " flowing through North America" mean that the oil will not "flow to" North American.

    So much for the benefits of "drill baby drill !!"

    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.
    Well the Igloo Girl would have to dig a hole to crawl under the bar.

    We really should just make this a drinking game. Every time "Igloo Girl" get's said, take a shot. We have an excuse to get drunk and deal with the retardedness.

    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.

    Hold on there Dog ! Are you saying that the great reformer and breath of fresh air and "maverick" is using state tax money,
    " a natural-gas pipeline project backed by $500 million in state tax money,"

    I am shocked I tell you. I really though we would see better bahavior from The House of Igloo !!
