To the editor:
Back in 2008, right at the peak of the McCain/Palin, Obama/Biden presidential election, I wrote a scathing opinion to the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman about Sarah Palin (titled Caribou Barbie), and five years later, I would like to recant my opinion and tell the people of the Mat-Su Valley just how wrong I was at the time.
The Frontiersman published the opinion and it drew a lot of comments, mostly negative, and here we are almost five years later, and I want to pass on what I have learned.
In closing, Sarah Palin warned us, and that is irrefutable. But I have learned from it the hard way. Instead of forward, which is the current battle cry, it seems that backward is the new norm. I shudder to think what this country will be like in the next four years.
Yes, Sarah warned us, and some listened. I dont agree with her all the time, but what is intriguing is that she somehow knew. How, I ask? Not sure, but she knew, and that is fact. Maybe I should have listened.

I love the comments at the link. Thanks for sharing this.
Nice he can admit it. Too bad he didn’t publish that before the election.
She wasn’t the only one Chuck. She added a voice to what many of us knew. Do you think there were those who warned about Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and the like. Freedom lovers perceive these traits far ahead of those who only concentrate on the one making the accusations. So, for your denseness and mocking four years ago, you will suffer the consequences. Unfortunately, freedom lovers will too for a season.
Charles Fredericks, too late, we have more idiots in office.
If you’re moral compass is calibrated correctly, it’s not hard to figure out who is really the bad guy.
Unfortunately, not too many have our compasses correctly calibrated.
Easy - having 1) a conscience 2) common sense.
