Palin, The Alaskan

My favorite local editorial cartoonist points out that just because you're from Alaska, doesn't mean you have the interests of wilderness in mind. And by one perspective, it's likely that your idea of custodianship is more akin to pillaging. We Washingtonians have an interesting relationship with Alaska politics: we're big trading partners, AK is a frequent vacation destination, most of the fishing fleet docks in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, we share a medical school - okay that last one's not SO big a deal... This is the third or fourth consecutive shot at Go. Palin that Horsey has taken this week. I guess it's one way we look out for or meddle in the business of our neighbor to the north.

I just have a hard time accepting that the Republicans think that she should not be scrutinized "because she is a woman." I heard today on C-Span's "Washington Journal" that we should not be scrutinizing John McCain because he was a POW.

Is this coming from the same crowd that was handing out Purple Heart Band-Aids in 2004?
