Still Pulling for Sarah Palin

It's nice to see Sarah Palin is gaining some traction among those taking on the right side of the blogosphere.

On Tuesday, a number of prominent blogs shared this WaPo video of an interview with her:



Good stuff.

And, for what it's worth, if McCain taps Ridge I (and many other social conservatives already a bit weary of McCain) will only be further disenfranchised.

Draft Sarah Palin

Things you need to know about Sarah Palin:

Sarah Palin, aka Sarah Chavez, proposed and pushed through the largest raise in taxes in Alaska's history. She supports the idea that the State can seize the property of oil producers in Alaska if they don't do what she wants. She has attacked almost the entire Republican majority in the house and senate. She stood by and giggled when a radio shock jock called the Republican President of the Senate a "bi*ch" and "a cancer". She threatened to support Democrats running against Republicans if they did not support her tax and spend policies.

Don't be fooled by a pretty face.

On the "giggle-gaffe," yeah, she should have reacted better, but she's since apologized to Lyda Green and that's good enough for me.

To your remaining points, in all my reading on Palin, you are the first to claim she has "tax and spend" policies. You're going to have back that up with better evidence than claiming it, while anonymous nonetheless.

Per oil companies, I can only assume you are talking about her support punitive damages over the Valdez spill. I'm a conservative and don't see anything wrong with that.

Just call me Tom... Tom from Kenai Alaska. Nice to meet you.

You call the radio incident a "giggle-gaffe", I call it childish, mean spirited and very unbecoming behavior for a governor. But, maybe you have lower expectations than I do. That's fine.

Tax: She presided over the largest retroactive tax increase on Alaska's top industry. When introduced, her tax hike (she named "ACES" - Alaska's Clear and Equitable Share) was $700 million. HOWEVER, she signed a $1.5 billion tax hike into law.

Spend: When she ran for office in 2006, Palin promised to cut the budget. What happened? The budget grew $350 million. (I can't wait to see how much it'll grow this year with that extra retroactive tax revenue coming in!)

And no, I wasn't talking about the punitive damages against Exxon. But since you brought it up; I'm a fiscal conservative and an Alaskan and I see a lot wrong with it.

What I was talking about was the fact that Palin has threatened to seize the property of the oil producers if they don't do what she wants to get a gasline. See "AGIA", another stupid acronym of hers, which stands for 'Alaska Gasline Inducement Act'. The only thing holding up the gasline is her unwillingness to give the producers some fiscal framework to plan for the $30 plus billion project.

Look up this stuff and verify it; or don't. But you can't say you weren't warned!

Sarah Palin supports aerial shooting of wolves and bears even though the people of Alaska have voted twice to ban it.
