There is absolutely no way anyone could seriously make such a proposition.

There are 20 mayors with populations and larger than Alaska.

That places Palin 21st on my list.

There 46 states with populations larger than Alaska.

That places Palin 67th on my list.

There are 435 Congressmen any of whom have a better understanding of the U.S. Congress, the role of the Federal government, and the Constitution.

That places Palin 502nd on my list.

There are 100 Senators who at the very least know that the Vice President doesn't run the Senate.

That places Palin 602nd on my list.

There are 300,000,000 Americans of whom I have to believe at the very least 10% have an IQ above a the wattage of a light bulb which puts Palin...

I think you can see where this is going.

You are kidding...right?
I will admit though, she does have a great way of making herself look like she knows more about stuff which she knows absolutely nothing about.

If oil is high in price,Alaska is rolling in cash; if not then their setting up meth labs. Oh,thats right,they have both.If you want to see if she is really good you'll judge her by the next year or 2 because of the decreasing price of oil and the growing alternatives to oil.

Alaska isn't teetering on bankruptcy like other states, especially the "blue" states.

Which of course has little to do with the administrative abilities or inabilities of its governor, since Alaska's main source of revenue is based upon gas and petroleum royalties, dependence upon the largesse of the Federal government all of which preceded Gov. Palin's election to high office. However, if you think back she did leave the little town of Wasilla in considerable debt.

Now if you want to compare the size and complexity of California's budgetary problems as compared to Alaska, I'm sure we could have an interesting discussion.
