Sarah Palin is not coming home to adoring supporters in Alaska. According to mudflats.wordpress.com (a wonderful site for all things Sarah) the democratic support for Witch-free spice is pretty much nonexistent after her loverly rallies inspiring fans to yell the somewhat less than comforting phrases "Kill Him" and "terrorist" about our president-elect, whose safety I (and I suspect Alaskans as well) have been rather obsessively worried about since he began his run. And I'm sure they're thrilled about her spending spree--with the implication that if the Governor is such a hilbilly, what's the rest of the state like? "Alaska-we're not as idiotic and grasping as our Governor. Really." How's that for a state slogan?
Plus, her approval ratings appear to have tanked.
As "Africa is a country Spice" (too long, you think?) reminded us in her interview with Katie Couric, "Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, 'Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?" Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.'" I guess there's news up there too.
