I’ll be heading back home to Anchorage today, and passing through Wasilla…Alaska’s new most famous (or infamous) small town and home of Governor Sarah Palin. I’ve got camera in hand and will post a “Valley Gallery” tonight. I’ve already got some great shots, and I think you’ll enjoy the virtual tour.
Just talked to a Valley resident who works for the state and is a registered Independent. I asked, “So, what do you think of our new Veep candidate?” The answer (after chuckling and shaking his head) “What a way to commit suicide.” He’d just gotten back from the Alaska State Fair. That’s where Palin was when she got “the call” from John McCain asking her to be his running mate. The first run of McCain/Palin T-shirts were already sold out. But there were a few bumper stickers left….right next to the ones that say “Liberalism is a Curable Disease”. Nothing like a little brotherly love in the Alaska Republican booth.
