She is a felon but what is intresting is all the guys that fell for her and elected her.
That IS a scarry thing.
Working in the oil industry, I can tell you that people in my business consider Alaska the most corrupt state in the union. Bribery is a way of life - it's no accident that Stevens is only one in a long line of politicians that have been sent to jail up there. People up there are living an orgy of greed, and no one down here really cares what's going on up there outside of ANWR. It was not always that way - but starting in the 70s Texans and Oklahomans started moving up there in a big way to build the pipelines, and they stayed to rape the place and brought their crazy assed fundamentalist religions, the meth-snorting hypocrisy, and far right racist politics with them. Palin is a typical Alaska politician, with a huge line of bullshit while in the real world she's fucking over state troopers who piss her off as she works to acquire a fortune. Every few years the FBI goes up there and cleans up the place. She'll get hers eventually.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
