Palin’s had a busy week, yet again. I missed most of it due to a nasty case of strep, so I think I’ll just sum up.
Wednesday: Pipeline- That pesky Senator Begich is poking his nose into Sarah’s business again, asking questions about her pipeline. Who does he think he is, a public servant or something?
Wednesday: Phew!- Luckily, one good thing happened to Sarah this week. Another ethics complaint was dismissed by that handy Personnel Board. Good thing she hired most of them herself.
Wednesday: Public Education Standards? Pshaww!- Palin got on the short bus this week to join a small group of governors who have said thanks but no thanks to helping develop national education standards. Who are these other brave governors? Why, none other than Texas Governor Rick “Let’s Just Succeed From the Union” Perry and South Carolina Governor Mark “You Can’t Make Me Take Money for Education” Sanford, of course. Oh, and Missouri Governor Jay Nixon. I have yet to figure out what his problem is.
Thursday: Politicians Use Their Power- Alaska Legislators are considering flexing their override muscles when it comes to the stimulus money that Palin has refused to accept. Now, if they could only get her to actually ask for it. Hmm…maybe if they tell her that she’s the only state in the whole country to refuse to take energy money. Nah, she’ll just feel all mavericky and stuff.
Thursday: Political Correctness: Screw It- AKM braved the most difficult challenge yet: facing both Michael Reagan and Sarah Palin in one sitting. Warning: this post is hard to sit through, and that’s not because of AKM’s writing. It’s just, well, nauseating.
Saturday: Pay Up!- Sarah has until June 23rd to repay the state for her family’s illegal trip-taking. I sure hope she got an advance on that “book.”
Saturday: Palin Plagarizes- You remember that speech up there? The one listed for Thursday? Well, turns out she didn’t write it all by herself. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. Yep, that’s what I thought.
Saturday: Parade- What’s the best way to wrap up a week like Sarah’s? A parade, of course! I bet Sarah felt like Miss Alaska again, even for just a moment. She’s going to need those positive feelings to last. I mean, tomorrow’s the start of another long week for the Governor. Lets hope this one works out a little better than the last one.
