Well, it's typical Palin. She was for her before she was against her.

I went downtown on Saturday "window shopping" & Sat. Market, first time in years. Palin in the windows & at the market.... she's now a commodity. "I Can See Russia" t-shirts, Palin coloring books, Palin painted wooden signs with catchy sayings, etc.

Sigh. Just when we thought she was fading from our state.

I need to get another cardboard cutout of the Palien to put on my hill; the one I put up there last week is all full of bullet holes.

Yea, right. Lisa M rode her daddies coat tails. Plus they are responsible for having the "road to nowhere" on Gravina built before the bridge to nowhere was axed. All done to improve access to land they owned on Gravina.

Uh, yeah Stiff. Lisa M. went to one of the toughest law schools in the country and graduated second in her class.

I was at her graduation, though I wasn't there for Lisa but rather for the person who graduated with even higher honors.

Palin bounced from one seventh rate college to another and wouldn't have had a prayer of getting into Willamette Law School let alone doing even the first year coursework.

I realize that such sentiments are considered "elitist thinking" by those of you with chips on your shoulders but thank Heaven there are still people in this country who recognize the value of achievement and hard work.

Lisa M. has stood her ground quite well. I don't agree with her politics but I admire the lady's integrity and her commitment to the great state of Alaska.

Well, if Palin were to run against Liza, I would vote for her. Liza has a few skeletons in her closet that could de-trone her should any good and conservative candidate would run against her. Please note that by good and conservative I am referring to anybody, not just Palin.

The problem with Liza is not just the Ravina Island and the lands she owns there plus the bridge to nowhere, but some land deals along the Kenai River she promptly got rid of when the news broke-out.

Another one who is walking on thin ice is Senator Begich. He left a mess in Anchorage before he left, and pretty much got away with it.

I'm not quite a "lefty"...and if you knew anything about politics in the state of Alaska you'd realize that disillusionment with the Palien is not just for "lefties" any more. But I guess that tired old mantra of "leave Palin alone" is all you've got.

Poor old Palien, all of us picking on her, doggone it.

Pass me a tissue; the unfairness of it all is making my plum colored mascara run down my cheeks.

I agree with you about Begich, Ray, but the lady's first name is Lisa, and it's Gravina Island and not Ravina.

Been into the wine already I take it....
