    She committed a crime to harm fish.

    She opposed the bill that would have stopped the pebble mine.

    My bad. Another reason to shut up. Sounds like she doesn't need any help to hang herself.

    Oh no, I still stand by my professional opinion and look at this like a metaphor. Let’s say the mayor of Forks was a member of the site. She had profile page not unlike that ball buster lady who thought she was a guide. I keep mentioning the mayor of Forks because that is the image I have of Palin. Let’s let oldman Jim be McCain. Obama can be Agent Montana(Edit: I’m sorry. I forgot that Agent was black. But he is the biggest liberal I know on the site.) I am voting for the biggest liberal on the outside chance he may change how we deal with our fish. It is apparent to me the GOP has done nothing to improve our odds fly fishing.

    1. Neutral according to her.

    2. She's a female face targeting the soccer mom votes.(think cheney, bush but in reverse) The guy who washes and starches McCane's tighty whiteys will have more of an impact on the president's daily decisions than she will.

    3. No, I will vote for the party that currently does not have control of congress every election. The less power either *cough* political party *cough* has the better.

    4. If given a time machine dialed in to 1984 I'd definatly tap dat. :rofl:

    "As part of a Bristol Bay fishing family myself, I would not support any resource development that would endanger the most sensitive and productive fishery in the world.

    The State of Alaska has stringent laws and regulations already in place to prevent environmental problems. As Governor, I will empower our state regulators, oversight officers, and scientists to do their jobs in all areas of resource development. I promise all Alaskans my administration will enforce the laws to the letter and ensure protection of our fishing and environmental resources so they will not be compromised or endangered by development.

    The Pebble Mine is a lightening rod for any discussion of open pit mining. The Pebble management firm, Northern Dynasty Mines, Inc., has not yet submitted a plan for public review and comment so the specific impacts are unknown. From completion of exploration to development could take 10 years or better because of permitting issues, public hearings and lawsuits. Northern Dynasty has a legal right to complete its studies and submit applications before the state judges the costs and benefits of the project. "

    her own words quoted from her website when she was running for governor.

    Screw change!

    I want gridlock! No bills passing means no more earmarks! Let the 9th circuit run into the ground! No more war authorizations, no more anti-war authorizations! It's the only way we can be safe from the bastards!

    I'm all for change, let's look at Barack's voting record...

    http://obama.senate.gov/votes/

    Why so many non votes is my question. He preaches change but doesn't even vote on most of the bills that are introduced in Congress? Oh yes universal health care, cause it works so well in other countries that have adopted it...
