    Hey no shit (I mean as in "that is cool", not like "yeah, no kidding")...I was just looking at Yahoo and saw that.

    I'm pretty psyched. I figure that anyone that Alaskans would elect is a "no bullshit", "by the bootstraps" kind of person. So, OK, I know that I'm casting a broad stroke...but I have my misconceptions and preconceived notions...

    I'm hoping I'm right. I'd love to have a pragmatic, non-whiner in the running on either side.

    Hey Y'all,

    I really, truly wish her and her family the very best during the runout of this incredible, historic gig. She's making/taking a tremendous leap for Women, Alaska, and, I pray, for the USA.
    What a gal! :clap

    We can also find solace in that we know she's ready for Washington D.C.:fully accustomed to pitching guts and carcasses, and has her own chest waders... still, that cesspool in D.C. will be a challenge! :lol3

    Thank You to all Alaskans who voted, too! None of this would be even a footnote during this election, except that y'all trusted her enough to vote her in... that's noteworthy! :deal

    OK, so I'm from NJ, right, probably not entitled to an opinion...but I think that Alaska and few other states still have what it takes to produce non-simpering, DIY citizens.

    McCain fired his campaign manager because the guy said America is full of whiners, or some such. He was right.

    I don't know if "we" (you, me, others here who are "DIYers" and who take responsibility for their actions/inaction--I can provide a better explanation of what I mean if that's too weird) are in the minority or if the whiners just have the amplified mic...but I'm glad that someone with some hutspa has got a shot!

    "OK, so I'm from NJ, right, probably not entitled to an opinion..."

    Everyone's intitled to their opinion, especially you, since we both agree!:deal :lol3 :lol3 :lol3

    I think the Dems are really under estimating Palin and hopefully will continue to do so.

    Governor is running for vice president.

    Lt Governor is running for senate.

    Who's manning the ship? Joseph Hazelwood?
