Alaska's Huckster

Posted By on Fri, Sep 26, 2008 at 7:58 PM

Too rich. Since Sarah Palin became Arkansas Alaska governor, she's been cashing in on gifts. Many thousands worth including trips for hubby and kids. (Bet The Huckster wishes Arkansas had Alaska's ethics laws.) Palin took the gifts from people with major lobbying interests, naturally.

So she's sleazy as well as unqualified.

The Couric interview clips keep coming. What a bangup job Couric did. Charlie Gibson, friend of the capital gains crowd, should hang his head. The latest interesting clip is Palin's effort, in response to a question about her lack of interest in foreign travel and world issues, to brand as elitist or rich anybody who'd traveled earlier in life.

"I'm not one of those who maybe come from a background of, you know, kids who perhaps graduated college and their parents get them a passport and a backpack and say, 'Go off and travel the world.' Noooo. I worked all my life. In fact, I  usually had two jobs all my life, until I had kids. ... I was not part of, I guess, that culture."

  • ADEQ denies C&H Hog Farm permit

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
