He turned down release to stay in the prison camp and get tortured. He was willing to die.

To be honest, this discussion has gone vile. I'm taking off. Just think about the fact that you are making fun of the appearance of a war hero. You might type it on a computer but you would never say that to his face. That's because this world is full of 2 kinds of people.. cowards and heros. McCain's a hero. You..well..

I wish that the people who have issues with either candidate or his running mate, would focus on the issues and not this petty stuff. Who cares if she had a pool table, wet bar and 10' stuffed grizzly bear put in the governor's mansion as long as she paid for it? Gov Patrick Deval, on the other hand, purchased new drapes for $10,000 and a new limo in which to get around and it was all funded by us, the poor taxpayers.

Now that (among so many other things) is an issue.

The Alaska Governor's Mansion, located at Juneau Alaska, is the official residence of the Governor of Alaska and his or her family.

Alaska winter scenes

The sun disappears for about two months in Barrow, on Alaska's north coast. In Anchorage, the sun rises around 10:30 a.m. and sets around 3:30 on the shortest day (December 20 or 21, the winter solstice). The shortest day is about an hour longer in Juneau, almost 2 hours shorter in Fairbanks.

Good point. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a very real phenomenon and it can affect quality of work and life. Tanning beds are known to minimize it.

She'll live to regret it, I know one lady who uses one on a regular basis, has been for about 8 years, she is now 52 and her skin looks like old used leather shoes.

That the OP thinks this is a BIG BAD STORY is pretty funny.

That said, when I heard about the tanning bed, I figured it was because there is pretty much NO sun up there for months. It helps with mood for some people. And even if she wanted it for vanity reasons, here is my response: Yawn.

"Mr Pale and Pasty" has had serious bouts of skin cancer. At least we know he has sense enough not to expose his skin to more sun rays just so he'll look good.

If I lived in Alaska, I might spring for a tanning bed too.

Heh...I think people use full spectrum lights for that, not tanning beds, but maybe the darkness explains Palin's general demeanor.
