Sarah Palin isn't a professional politician. Like most Republicans who are elected to public office, they have a career or trade to fall back on or go back to in the private sector after serving in an elected position. Most Democrats don't.
Thanks to all of the attention the progressive liberals had given Sarah Palin after the 2008 elections, I doubt Sarah or Todd ever have to pull in commercial fishing nets again to pay the bills.
Palin like Clint Eastwood both ran for mayor of their hometowns because they were pissed off at local government and wanted to make some changes.
Sarah Palin isn't a politician no more than Clint Eastwood or that guy with the German accent from Austria. They don't need to live off the tax payers.
Still, since she was governor of Alaska and ran for Vice President, if your excuse for her boorishness (and you seem to have many and varied excuses) is that she's not a politician, I think you probably should stop digging. You're in a really deep hole.
Besides, you're the one who brought up the virtue of her not shooting anybody from her Stretch Limo Hummer (yeah, not a politician all right). What does the above post have to do with how silly that claim is? I repeat, it appears that's as good as it gets for a modern Republican politicians -- that they can claim they haven't shot anybody yet, like Cheney did.
I think she should have stuck with the "Do you know who I am" card, and not the veteran card. She'll probably come up with something new by tomorrow. "Do you know Will I. Am?" Maybe that's what she was saying, because the Black Eyed Peas were playing on the Hummer stereo.
As for southpaws which are a species to themselves many will throw a left hook but there are a number who can hammer you with a right hook that you aren't expecting.
Alaska is an open carry state.
If Alaska had gun laws like most blue states, who knows what might have happened., the brawl might have turned into a gun fight.
It is noteworthy that there were no complaints to the police. None of the main participants have came forth to the media.
Can't give any credit to some anonymous source on the internet. Might as well say Santa Claus and the reindeers were at the party.
So it makes you wonder if this was just a drunken brawl and all involved are too embarrassed to say anything.
