I have been getting the feeling that Governor Palin’s antics are not going over very well in Alaska. I can’t name any specific thing that makes me think this, just a feeling I have gotten from a number of articles by and interviews with Alaskans I have seen. She has been perpetually absent from Alaska and apparently completely out of touch; her Lt. Governor stated that she has had very little contact with him, and since her email account was hacked, none at all. I’ve also seen reports that McCain’s monkeys are basically running the state government and really pushing a lot of people around. Plus, the stalling on Troopergate does not seem to be playing well; apparently this fired official is pretty popular, and McCain’s people may have broken laws by telling people to ignore subpoenas. Finally, I get the sense that Alaskans are embarrassed that they elected this buffoon who is now making them look like morons.
Does anybody else get this feeling? When Palin loses the election and goes back home, what do you think is in store for her? Does Alaska allow recalls? I must admit that the prospect of her administration going down in flames is somewhat appealing, in a watch-the-train-wreck-in-slow-motion kind of way.
